After cleaning, washing and dyeing the fibers, women start weaving using the special technique they learn since they are very young, making it a family tradition and passing this from generation to generation.

ARTISTS AND TECHNIQUES
Hand woven natural wicker fiber by artisan women in Cerinza, Boyacá
Colombia in all of its splendor and color is a continuous source of inspiration. In previous collections we have looked from the mountains to the coasts for ideas. For Los Corales Collection we went to the reefs of the Caribbean and worked on abstract interpretations of corals as organic and repetitive structures. The result is a set of abstract yet organic patterns that allude to corals while still reminding us of traditional and vintage Kuna Textiles.
Large enough to exhibit the richness of the Kuna textiles, our signature clutch/crossbody bag is perfect for everyday use yet not too big to be used in the evenings. It fits large phones & wallets, and even an iPad mini and comes with a detachable leather strap.
