The indigenous communities from the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta cultivated fique for many centuries to make mainly garments, ropes and hammocks. Fique is well-known for its strength and durability. Fique garments tend to last decades when proper care is given.
Fique fibers are dyed with natural pigments by means of a boiling process, creating colorful spools of fique fibers that are used by the local artisans to create these one-of-a-kind handbags.
