Liliana Woven Clutch
This stylish yet versatile clutch is made from natural dyes and fibres from the Pacific jungle - bringing a touch of Colombian magic for every outfit. Each clutch is beautifully hand woven by our artisans, displaced from their home in El Cauca and living in the south of the capital city, Bogota.
HAND WOVEN BY THE WOMEN OF THE EPERAARA SIAPIDAARA TRIBE
The Eperaara Siapidaara are an incredible indigenous community, originally from El Cauca, who relocated due to the violence in 2008 and are now living in Bogotá. Weaving in paja tetera is a tradition that has been passed down for generations. The baskets were originally used to store food and household items and have now become their main source of income. Traditionally it is the women who weave and the men who trek up to three hours into the jungle to harvest the materials. The plants are then carried back and left to dry for three days before the women can begin weaving.
