NON KENEBO - We adapt and keep dreaming

Faced with the difficult situation of the COVID 19 pandemic, our Kene Nete collective paralyzed their activities during the 2020 and the first months of the year 2021. We were mainly affected by the restrictions imposed by the government and also because many of the members of our collective and their families suffered from Covid.

With trade restricted for long periods, it was difficult for us to acquire supplies such as textiles, yarns, buttons, etc. In addition, the paralysis of tourist activity left us without a market where we could offer our products. For this reason, we were forced to stop the production and elaboration of garments. For us, young Shipibo-Konibo artists, it is a challenge to position ourselves in the fashion industry with identity.

However, we are adopting to the new normality and little by little, new opportunities are opening up to us. We received an invitation from the Shipibo Digital TV program "Non Kaya" to do a live fashion show of our collection and use the social media broadcast to launch the pre-sale of the garments we made before the pandemic. Many Shipibo Konibo models wore our clothes and we had a great acceptance from the public who tuned in.

Because we didn't sell all our garments, we did a photo shoot and through our social networks we continued with the sales. In addition, we participated in the clothing sales fair "Inoa Xatan Fashion", offering our products along with other fashion initiatives in our region.

This new year we have all the energy to continue showing you our work and our bet, to make sustainable fashion with that identity that we inherited from our Shipibo Konibo culture!

 

Jatibi jakon!
