Textile artist Camila Moreno is originally from Chile and has been living in Amsterdam since late 2020. She’s a graphic designer by training, but has been dedicated to textile design since she founded @pampa_deco 6 years ago. This drove her to start exploring and studying hand weaving techniques in Santiago more than two years ago, where she discovered her love and passion for this craft. Fast forward to 2020, she moved with her family to Amsterdam and started a studies about antiques weaving techniques (mainly from Finland and Sweden) in the Ambachtelijke Weverij. This journey has shown Camila that hand weaving is a great passion and that she wants to share it with new generations to feel the same joy that she experiences and also to maintain its relevancy against modern weaving techniques. Camila teached weaving courses/workshops at De Steek. Instagram: @camilamoreno.textiles.
