Isabel Martínez

I decided to study archeology in the Universidad de San Antonio Abad in Cusco, Perú, due to my profound interest in the pre-Hispanic cultures of the Andes. I discovered the pre-Columbian textiles while studying and I became more and more passionate about this millenary art. I specialized in Andean pre-Columbian textile techniques and iconography and I have applied this knowledge in research, conservation and restoration of this type of textiles.

From this work is born my conviction on the potential textiles have as transmitters of ideas and knowledge. From 2005 to 2008 I worked at the Centro de Arte Textil Pawllu and in the Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino in different textile collections.
