Coco Fique Bag

Add practical to your life.

This mochila was crafted by a Kankuamo woman that has lost her sight due to aging. All she needed was her sense of touch and the result is even finer than the typical mochila bag.

The Kankuamo belong to an indigenous reservation in the Cesar region of the Sierra Nevada of Colombia. It is made from 100% fique, a plant native to the Andean region. The indigenous communities from the Colombian Andes extracted and used fique for several centuries to make garments, ropes, and other tools. Fique is well-known for its strength and durability. Fiber is naturally hand-dyed with vegetable dyes from plants. 

These pieces can be worn by both men and women. Wear it across your body or on one shoulder. 

The dye was obtained from coconut skin through means of a boiling process.
