What is Manguaré?
Manguaré is a percussion instrument used by Amazonian indigenous communities to announce ceremonies, declarations of war and messages of LOVE.
This is how that message of love and learning came to me,
through the desire of weave.
Hi! I'm Sara Escobar
I'm from Colombia, a newcomer in Canada, I am a Social worker by profession,
this have given me the opportunity to travel around Colombia and learn from different
Colombian indigenous communities.
It was during this time that I learned this weaving technique called Miyuki, that captivated me and quickly became a big part of my life.
Initially it was a peaceful moment for me like some sort of meditation. It taught me a lot about myself and inspired me to use this craft to express my ideas
and empower other women with these beautiful accessories.
