Reinvesting the traditional methods of manufacturing and natural dyes from the Philippines, Mariton Villnueva wishes to preserve and revive the textile know-how of the archipelago.
She created the brand Himaya ("glory" and "praise" in the Isaya language) to distribute her clothing collections. According to her, it is the best tool to raise awareness of the precariousness of know-how and resources, while inviting to a more responsible way of life and consumption.
You are listening to an episode of a long series of interviews conducted with the artists, designers, collectors who make the International Festival of Extra Ordinary Textiles, during this edition "love etc."
Co-organized by the association HS_Projets, the City of Clermont-Ferrand and the Bargoin Museum Clermont- Auvergne-Métropole, the FITE, an initiative of the association HS_Projets, is nomadic and invites the 5 continents. In odd years, the event goes abroad, in 2021 to Senegal. On even years, it makes Clermont-Ferrand vibrate to the rhythm of the world.
Clermont-Ferrand, candidate for the title of European Capital of Culture for 2028, has chosen the FITE, to carry this economic, social, educational and civic ambition. It is committed to helping Clermont-Ferrand identify and promote its identity
and its specificities as well as to renew its image at the regional, national and European levels.
