The Story

These treasures were curated in Colombia and both are representative of the history and existing indigenous culture in this vibrant country. 

1) Tayrona Hand Woven Bracelet

Curated in Santa Marta, Colombia, the artisan who made this bracelet uses ancient embroidery techniques from the Tayrona culture, a Pre-Columbian indigenous society. I personally love the sheer intricacy of the design of this versatile bracelet. 

  • One Size Fits Most - Adjustable
  • .25" Wide
  • delicate thread woven to a pre-columbian inspired pattern, wax coated cords, beads
  • Handmade with love in Colombia
  • Care instructions: Keep it separate from other accessories, do not bath or sleep in them, keep them out of contact from perfumes, soaps, lotions, etc

    2) Miniature handwoven Indigenous Kogi Mochila - 

    This miniature fique mochila bags was woven by the women of the Kogi tribe living in the Sierra Nevada of Northern Colombia. I curated on the way back from my 4 day trek to "La Ciudad Perdida" - see additional pictures.

    The process for making the bags (both the standard size and this miniature bag) starts with the extraction of the fiber from the maguey fique plant and the preparation of natural dyes by members of the community. Each bag is woven by hand and is said to carry the positive desires that the woman imparts into it during its creation. 

    This little mochila is 3" Deep and a great way to gift these pre-columbian inspired earrings.
