Zaffo is a ganze for hemostatic purposes in the healing process.
How do you feel when a person that you love dies?
How do you describe the pain?
Zaffo is an awareness, a point of view, an embroidered emptiness. I tried to treat a wound, to cover an absence, but it's impossible.
Zaffo is also a reborn, a hug for your heart, a lesson because you can learn a lot from your pain. The cotton yarn is time and care for ourself.
Is also my mother’s memory: she taught me to make doilies during her last life months.
The doily allows to see the photos through the yarn: a belly button and a breast, the remind to femininity, to mum and the first relationship that we have in our life.
Two body parts very important to feed.
Food for body and soul.
So there this is an intimate relationship.
So there this is what we lose with death.
