Casa Mosqoy: Build Housing for Peruvian Students
The precision required to weave a beautiful textile is Mosqoy's model of education and positive change. The placement behind each thread is guided by the design of the textile, which isn't apparent until the whole piece is complete. The weaving that emerges is the fruit of thousands upon thousands of little steps towards a greater vision. Every time a student has the opportunity to take these small, directed steps, they come closer to seeing the unique design of thieir full potential. (view small | med | large | orig)
