Peruvian alpaca wool is a material of significance among Andean highland communities and their rich textile traditions. Within global fashion worlds, it is considered a luxurious material, exceptionally manufactured at the hands of artisans living in extreme poverty. Entretejido weaves together the different sites and communities involved in the making of alpaca wool fashions, exploring the varying representations of indigeneity that emerge out of these encounters. The film is a sensorial immersion into the textures that compose this supply chain, from animal to runway, bringing viewers into contact with the ways the objects we wear are entangled in national racial politics.
