Agosin, Marjorie. Tapestries of Hope, Threads of Love: The Arpillera Movement in Chile, 1974-1994. [Cover Picture Not Available]

This book tells the story of women living in terror and poverty under General Pinochet’s dictatorship. To spread the story of their fruitless searches in jails, morgues, and government offices for their husbands, brothers, and sons, they stitched arpilleras with scenes of everyday life and memorials to their disappeared relatives and smuggled them out of Chile. Includes 48 vibrant photographs of the arpilleras.
