STORY

HANDWOVEN BY THE WOMEN OF NARINO

 

In Sardona, weaving is the main form of income for many women. During the week, they will work on the creations, juggling working on a farm or looking after family. Come the weekend, they will travel to a workshop to practice and evolve these designs. This involves converting the native iraca palm into thin or thicker threads, to create the unique pieces you see today.
