Yesterday Jam: Black Velvet


Terciopelo. Clases de historia. Invierno. Recuerdo una vieja película en blanco y negro acerca de la realeza inglesa. Escasos ocho años fueron suficientes para reconocer a distancia el material del cortinaje: terciopelo. 

Desde entonces tuve fascinación con el material. La sensación de suavidad y fortaleza a la vez, de movimiento y rigidez, tantas contradicciones que sembraron en mi una increíble ansia de tocar las hebras a través de la pantalla. 

Velvet. History lessons. Winter. I remember an old black and white movie about English royalty. Only eight years old were enough to recognize at distance the curtain material: velvet. 

Since then I had a fascination with the material. The feeling of softness and strength at the same time, movement and stiffness, so many contradictions that seeded an incredible desire to touch the strands through the screen.


El cortinaje era rojo carmesí, el mismo tono del traje roído de terciopelo de la imagen de la Virgen María en la Iglesia del pueblo donde correteábamos los fines de semana mientras los adultos se encargaban de asuntos importantes. Recuerdo que una parte del manto de la imagen se encontraba desteñido y manchado por los destellos de sol que entraban en una diminuta ventana dentro de la Iglesia con arquitectura neo-gótica. 

The curtain was crimson red, the same shade of the gnawed velvet suit that adorned the Virgin Mary image inside the village church where we ran on weekends while the adults took care of important matters. I remember one part of the mantle of the image was faded and stained by sunlight that came in a tiny window in the Neo-Gothic church.


Es así mi recuerdo del terciopelo, que curiosamente había olvidado y recordé cuando este vestido llegó a mis manos  tras varios dueños. Me pongo el vestido y regreso las clases de historia, al invierno. Terciopelo.

This is my memory of velvet, which I had strangely forgotten and remembered when this dress came to me after several owners. I put the dress back and I come back to history classes, winter. Velvet.
