HANDWOVEN BY THE WOMEN OF ZENÚ
The ancient Zenú tribe are spread across the vast northern lands of Córdoba and Sucre. The women weave in ‘caña flecha’, the leaf of a cane that grows around the wetlands of the indigenous reserves. Plants and mud from the land are then used as natural dyes, creating some of the most beautiful colours.
