  • STORY

    HAND WOVEN BY THE WOMEN OF USIACURI

    Tucked away in the hills near Barranquilla, Usiacurí is one of the most peaceful towns in the country. Both men and women have been working with iraca palm for generations and one still sees, peeping through the windows, daughters, mothers and grandmothers sat together weaving away through the heat of the day. Originally the palm was sourced from the local grasslands but due to changes in climate, it is now bought from Bolivar, a few hours south, to be washed, dyed, dried, and cut to size ready for weaving.
