Aurelia Meza Colonia
Introduction
  Aurelia Meza lives in the Andean town of Hualhuas. She is married to another artisan in our group, Francisco Rojas Aroni. Adress: Casa Artesania
Meet Aurelia
 

Aurelia Meza Colonia has lived in Hualhuas all of her life. She began work as a seamstress, making bedsheets out of sheep's wool with her mother. Surrounded by artisans and with the help of her aunt, she began her own work at the age of twenty.

In 1976, she and her husband worked with the Swiss scientist Hugo Zumbuhl to create a book about natural dyes. She visited Frankfurt and has taken courses in Cologne, selling many color cloths in Germany. Through this education, she quickly developed her own style, using naturally dyed fabrics, and designs inspired by “the passage of time and the colors of flowers.”

She now uses her artwork to support the education of her children, who, she says, want to follow in their mother's footsteps.
