The Kuna textile was 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 specific design of the artisan woman who carefully works on it. The Guna culture, beliefs and traditions can be found woven into each composition. Some depict stories, animals or daily scenes while others offer a more abstract design. The Jaspe fabric used for the sides of this tote was handwoven on a backstrap loom in Guatemala and inspired by the pieces of Wicklewood founder's great grandmother, Lilly De Jongh's extensive Mesoamerican textile collection.
