STORY

HANDWOVEN IN SATIVANORTE

 

Handcrafted using natural esparto fibres found in the páramo and the high Andean forest. Farmers in this region are transitioning from traditional agricultural and livestock farming to more sustainable activities within the protected area, in order to safeguard incomes and the environment for future generations. The Artesanías del Páramo de Guina aim to conserve the natural area, through restoration of nature and the planting of new esparto crops allowing for permanent supplies of the natural fibre. The crafting process of esparto involves cooking and air drying the raw material, before dying with natural colours and finally hand weaving into the beautiful products that we see today.
