La semana de la lana en Madrid y mi visión nada romántica del asunto

Sé que algunas veces puedo ser como un grano en el culo pero me gusta reflexionar sobre el sentido de algunas cosas.
Cuando ví el cartel de la Semana de la Lana, casi lloro de la emoción... una semana entera viendo como es el proceso de la lana, sus beneficios y bondades y talleres para que la gente aprenda a tejer y hacer cosas por sí mismas.

Al final pude acercarme ayer un rato... y me quedé un poco fría. La calle Serrano, epicentro del consumismo más salvaje se llenaba de pijas de mechas rubias aleladas viendo una oveja con la misma cara de un marciano... Eso sí, la calle estaba espectacular con los bodegones de amigurumies gigantes tejidos por montones de manos expertas... pero luego solo veía tiendas carísimas con descuentos del 20% en sus prendas de lana hechas en China, bajo unas condiciones que vete tú a saber...

Me quedé un poco decepcionada, no voy a negarlo.
Para mí esta campaña debería concienciar a la gente de que la lana es un bien que debemos cuidar... que da de comer a muchas zonas rurales en vías de extinción... que es sostenible y bella, que además deberíamos estar aprendiendo a hacer cosas con nuestras manos porque sube la autoestima un montón y además las heredan otras personas porque te da pena deshacerte de ellas. Que debemos fomentar el comercio local y los creadores emergentes que dan trabajo a los talleres de confección local para que entre todos cambiemos de mentalidad y contribuyamos a que esto cambie de una vez por todas y se vayan a la mierda los intermediarios que no aportan nada...

Y de todo esto me quedo con las caras de las señoras de mechas con hijos de sonrisa blanqueada, mirando como bobas las ovejas y comprando jerseys hechos en China en condiciones infrahumanas...
Estoy un poco triste.

I know sometimes I can be a pain in the ass but I like to reflect on the meaning of some things.

When I saw the poster for the Week of Wool, I almost cried with excitement ... a week seeing how the process of wool, its benefits and advantages and workshops for people to learn how to knit and do things for themselves.



Finally yesterday I approached a while ... and I was a little cold. Serrano Street, the epicenter of consumerism wildest filled with blond streaks silly cocks of seeing a sheep with the same face of a Martian ... Yes, the street was spectacular with giant amigurumies still lifes by piles of fabric expert hands ... but then just looked expensive stores with discounts of 20% on your woollens made ​​in China under conditions that go you know ...



I was a little disappointed, I will not deny it.

For me this campaign should raise awareness that wool is an asset that should care ... that feeds many rural areas endangered ... that is sustainable and beautiful, it should also be learning to do things with our hands because it raises self-esteem and also a lot of other people because you inherit embarrassed rid of them. We should encourage local trade and emerging artists who employ the local garment factories that we all change our mindset and contribute to this to change once and for all and go to hell intermediaries are negligible. ..



And all this I keep the faces of the ladies of wicks with children unbleached smile, looking as silly sheep and buying jerseys made ​​in sweatshops in China ...

I'm a little sad.
