We used Levoy Exil's painting as an inspiration for the macrame fabric. Everything Levoy paints has spiritual meaning for him in the Vodou tradition, which we were careful to maintain. He is known for using a patchwork of bright colors and graphic patterns as the foundation of his paintings. For this collection, we translated them into a patchwork of textures, all in optic white. The fabric came to life in the hands of masterful Bolivian artisans. They began by creating the outline of the spirits with hand crochet, then each shape was filled in with a variety of macrame and irregular woven stitches, woven by hand using a needle. Each stitch, knot and weave was painstakingly hand crafted, taking 31 artisans over 5000 hours to complete the group. The long poncho alone took 1500 hours.
