This technique originates in its eponymous municipality in the coastal Region of Cesar (Colombia). It was traditionally used by indigenous communities to make sleeping mats from the “Estera” palm. Today it has been adopted by Afro Communities and has evolved into natural rugs and placemats, most of them featuring geometric designs in various color combinations. This craft constituted a prosperous home industry, but today is being threatened by agriculture, cattle raising and expanding urban expansion. This tote also incorporates The Kuna textile that are handsewn by artisan women of the Guna Dule community of Caimán Alto, Colombia. For generations, the artisan women have passed down an ancient appliqué technique of hand sewing cut-out layers of fabric to form an intricate piece of art. Each fabric is the unique design of the artisan woman who carefully crafted it. In the Guna culture, beliefs and traditions can be found woven into each composition. Some depict stories, animals or daily scenes while others portray a more abstract design
