Fair trade

I have read a little more about the crisis and it is pretty worrying … but I repeat, I am Argentinian and I know what a real crisis is.
Because of this I think we must find alternatives to despair and that money is not everything …. when I remember 2001 crisis in my country, I have the image of people swapping goods and interchanging experiences that made a big change in their lives, we called it “trueque”. A very good thing that could make everyone do something for others (and ourselves too) …

I began to think what sort of thing I would love to swap:
1. Food, basically impossible to implement on line
2. Wool , yarn and fabrics (to continue producing)
3. Other handmade products of other artisans in the world (which I would use of course)
4. Services (why not?) As gym classes or haircuts or a massage (this could be implemented locally, as for food)
5. Specialized books on textiles
6. Supplies, endings, findings to make bags, bracelets,etc.
7. Anyone has a mannequin!? I need one!
8. Shoes!
9. Clothes

If you have more ideas… write me! especially if these are things I put on the list …
I think it would be best if both partners commit to pay the shipping via paypal to each other (although the same cost, but it is a payment made) and then send it and ready!
Anyway, I’m super excited about the idea so hopefully it is possible to perform …

  • Geometry
    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
