Tessanda - First place in the «European Textile & Craft Award 2024» in the Textile Craft category
The Tessanda women at the award ceremony were delighted! The hand weaving mill Tessanda from Sta. Maria V.M. wins the gold award in the Textile Crafts category. It was honoured for its «Maurus» apron, for its commitment to the craft of weaving and the creation of jobs for women, for its bold plans for the future and for the cross-country and cross-valley generation and craft project.
Barbecue apron «Maurus»
Tessanda has submitted its «Maurus» barbecue apron for the «European Textile & Craft Award 2024». The international jury awarded Tessanda the gold prize in the Textile Craft category with the following justification:
«The design and concept of the product are impressive in their versatility. The product ideas are contemporary and do not treat «handmade» as an end in itself, but rather as a pleasant «adon». The submitted piece, Maurus, is an apron with a detachable leather belt that combines design and craftsmanship at a high level. The weaving branch located in Sta. Maria is an exemplary contributor to the promotion and dissemination of the craft of weaving. The branch has old looms, a comparatively large production, and ambitious goals for the future.
In addition to the high-quality workmanship, the cross-country and cross-valley generation and craft project is worth mentioning as it creates numerous job opportunities, mainly for women, in a village with a population of 300».
