Red Fountains – Mexico Embroidering For Peace

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In Coyoacan, Mexico, a group of creatives known as the Fight for Love, Truth and Justice Collective embroider and knit for ‘hope and memory’. They are all relatives of the missing people of the war on drugs. Embroidered on handkerchiefs,are the names and descriptions of each victim. They are tied to what looks similar to a washing line, to be displayed in public squares across the country.  Men also embroider in this collective which they make very clear.
