My hope

by Camila Moraga

This pattern is hope, for me, is an intrinsic notion of human beings, naturally and born of life, while there is life there is hope, which is why this symbol resembling an unborn baby, which protected the unborn and this expands and comes to light, communicating.
I wanted to abstract from something so exciting and joyful protected, sweet, intimate, but that opens, generating plenty and is repetitive, despite all the negative experience we may have hope always becomes and remains, a concept without end that is transferred between generations, the younger, only when smiling, keep it alive in their communities, as Chilean poet says: "A young person has the right and duty to have hope" (Armando Uribe, Diario El Ciudadano, September 2010, n°. 88).

This pattern, measures 20 x 20 cms., is to be stamped on the weave plain, or otherwise treated or embroidery (as is best according to the techniques that are working in Bangladesh), is placed to the width of the fabric, leaving 5 cm. from the edge warp on either side and 15 cms. from the frame boundary, then repeated reflected, with a separation of 2.5 cm., according to the horizontal is repeating the pattern, leaving 3 cms. apart in its original form, then after 2.5 cms. repeats reflected and so on. Finally, in the width of the fabric, stamped 5 times the pattern.
Up, this series is repeated with a spacing of 2 cm., following in the vertical of the fabric, leaving a gap of 15 cms. and repeats the same series.
The complete sequence of the pattern 109.5 cms. wide x 41 cms. high.

The colors are chosen as first option 4: Purple - PANTONE Process Coated DS 136-1 C, Yellow - PANTONE Process Coated DS 5-1 C, Orange - PANTONE Process Coated DS 22-1 C, Pink - PANTONE Process Coated DS 70 - 2 C, were chosen by looking through the internet pictures of Bangladesh, fabrics and costumes, I decided to a color chart that referred to their own tones.
This can be seen also in the different color options, also included color variations of the same weave plain by introducing warp yarns of different color to create vertical stripes.
