In collaboration with our favorite storyteller, journalist & filmmaker, Sophia Li, we have created a limited edition Holiday Capsule Collection inspired by our shared passion for the wonders and wisdom of nature, the power of collective caretaking/human collaboration and and the need for hope, optimism and joy today and everyday.
The theme: corals as a representation of the resiliency of our spirit and psyche as we come back to life after the past two years.
The protagonists: 2 of our key Colombian artisan partners. Ana Sofía, a local jeweler based in Bogotá, handcrafted each piece following the shapes and textures of the coral species of the Caribbean such as “Zonathids” and “Discosoma”. Hand weavers of Sandoná, Nariño, created every jewelry box that comes with the earrings inspired by the bright and colorful life of the sea world with natural Iraca, one of the richest and most delicate fibers of the country. Additionally, a limited edition selection of Iraca Oval Boxes and Totes selected by Sophia Li, can be bought with any pair of earrings at no additional markup. All styles were bought directly from the artisans’ stock in order to help them promote their own designs.
The give back: Sophia Li will be donating 100% of her proceeds for a special development project in agriculture with the Guna Dule community, one of the most remote communities we work with. The project will focus on maximizing responsible production of the Zapote /Sapote fruit on their land.
