In true Love Is Project tradition, we were incredibly inspired by Colombia’s history, culture, and people. Our colorful LOVE bracelets are handmade by an artisan family from Tuchin, known for their woven sombrero hats. They recently evolved into creating bracelets. Each cuff is made with cana fleche, a tall grass which is sliced into thin strips, dried, colored and then woven into LOVE bracelets. Our Colombia Collection also features our first ever bag line. These unique, technicolor dream bags hail from San Jacinto, Colombia, renowned for its rich history of artisanal textile design and production.
Our artisans are the indigenous Embera Chami community of tribes who have shared their heritage crafts through five generations. Inspired by the Rainbow River, they weave these colors into their wares and fabrics.
Your purchase will greatly help the indigenous Embera-Chami artisans tribe who is currently in exile from their ancestral site occupied by the guerrilla and paramilitaries who harass the women and young men into joining the insurgent groups.
