INTRODUCTION

About the WTA Organization

The WTA Organization was born in 1997 in the city of Miami-Florida, United States, under the name of Women in Textile Art.

Pilar Tobón, Founding President and Colombian textile artist, raised this great challenge in view of the need to vindicate textile art locally and globally.

WTA has always pursued the goals of supporting-disseminating-promoting-encouraging textile artists and their works.

For the year 2009 and given the inclusive and universal character of textile art, it changes its name to World Textile Art.

our objectives

PROMOTION OF TEXTILE ART

Strengthen, inspire and promote manifestations of contemporary textile art in all the places where the WTA is present.
