100% paja tetera fiber, crafted in Colombia. Tinted with vegetable dye, this basket bag features characteristics borrowed from African culture.
The story behind the family that crafts these bags is very special as they come from one of the most impoverished indigenous groups of the country. They employ age-old techniques and design, compatible with contemporary needs. The family today of 14 women have moved to the capital of Colombia, Bogota, as they have been displaced by the guerrilla. Let's support these women earn sustainable wages.
