A Planetary Map of Fast Fashion

Settlements like Kapashera have emerged through their entanglement with an ecology of planetary fast fashion. We wanted to collectively reflect on this ecology with the women's collective from the community. We decided to use the cadastral map of Kapashera, a tool which allows patriarchal control over the settlement of Kapashera as a figure for the collective tapestry. Over the months of September to November 2019, the seven sisters women's collective produced a collective tapestry which reflects on these planetary entanglement of Kapashera and explores alternative narratives of its transformation and entanglements with the life stories of the migrants.
