Tamara Aida Diaz had a simple idea: Blend her two loves, art and fashion, to create something unique and beautiful. And there was no better way to illustrate the harmonizing concept than through the art of weaving. A couple days and a few phone calls later, TAMBONITA and the Artist Collective were born. As it turns out, it wasn’t too difficult to find local artists looking for true freedom of expression. After all, the weaving happens in Venice, California.
