Our clutches hail all the way from San Jacinto Colombia, a town famous for its rich textiles and artisanal history.
Made from handwoven straw found in traditional sombrero hats and technicolored, upcycled woven fabrics, no two bags are the same. Artisans use the offcuts of their fabrics to make these clutches.
Carry the vibrancy of the Colombia tropics and add a pop of color to any outfit, day or night.
Each bag purchased helps to create jobs for women who had been displaced by social and political conflict in the Marias Mountains in 1996.
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.
