STORY

In Northern Colombia, the municipality of San Jacinto has made ​​its name as a craft centre. Known as the 'first on the Atlantic Coast', colourful hammocks, handbags and pillows are weaved, amongst other products, on a vertical loom. Girls inherit the craft at the age of 12 and as a result, many follow the path of their artisan mother and grandmother. But weaving is more than an income - it's a way of life for them, a symbol of cultural wealth and tradition. The Colombia Collective has taken the traditional material and re-invigorated it into vibrant tablecloths, tablemats and cushions.
