- An arpillera (burlap) is a brightly colored patchwork picture which became popular as an art form in Chile during the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet as a way for groups of women to denounce the country's political situation. This publication by the arpillera workshop of the Chilean Agrupación de Familiares de Detenidos-Desaparecidos (Association of Families of the Detained-Disappeared) is a short history of the arpillera movement and a collection of some arpillera works related to the fight for the detained-disappeared in Chile.
