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, manager and Colombian textile artist, raised this great challenge in the face of the need to vindicate textile art locally and globally.
Pilar Tobón has always pursued the objectives of supporting-disseminating-promoting-encouraging textile artists and their works.
For the year 2009 and given the inclusive and universal nature of textile art, it changes its name to World Textile Art.
