Ivory Coast & USA Cross Cultural Collaboration, Five | Six Textiles, Weaving
Five | Six Textiles collaborates with Dyula weavers in Côte d’Ivoire to preserve the artistic practice of hand-weaving in the present and for the future. Five | Six began with a conversation. Emma Wingeld, a textile specialist, met with the Dyula Master weavers of Waraniéné, and they expressed an interest in working with someone on product development and bringing their textiles to an international audience. Five | Six Textiles was founded two years later, and now produces limited edition and small batch collections of home textiles that use traditional patterns to produce modern fabrics while also preserving a rare weaving culture.
