Textile Tourism: Argentine Center for Textile Art (CAAT)
Buenos Aires, Argentina: A city that goes to sleep at 6:00am and awakens by 3:00pm, at which time you can visit the Argentine Center for Textile Art (CAAT).
CAAT is a non-profit association that has been promoting textile creation for the past 34 years, encouraging its members to take advantage of monthly exhibition opportunities as well as conferences and workshops. It publishes the ever newsy and popular Tramemos journal*, and its vast textile library is considered one of the best in the world.
*“Let’s Weave” is a weak translation since the Spanish verb tramar means, “to plot” and “to warp” at the same time.CONTACT: Address Viamonte 1728 2º E (CP1055). Ciudad de Buenos Aires, Argentina Phone (+54 11) 4371-7581 Website http://www.caat.org.ar Hours Monday through Friday, 3:00 to 6:00pm
