Distinctive pieces from Colombia; inc. fine silver/gold filigree & bronze jewellery, traditional alpargatas shoes & iconic indigenous mochilla bags. All our products are made by hand, and showcase the beauty, workmanship and character of different Colombian communities and artisans. We work closely with the family businesses and communities who produce our products. Our Products: 970 Silver & Gold Filigree Jewellery, from Santa Cruz de Mompox: Produced by 6th generation family craftsmen, these stunning pieces come from the idyllic town of Santa Cruz de Mompox, situated in the middle of the Magdalena River. Thanks to this isolation, Mompox has retained its magical colonial charm and traditions, including the time-honoured tradition of producing intricate and striking filigree jewellery. --- Traditional Alpargatas Shoes, from Curití, Santander: Emblematic of Colombian culture and tradition, alpargatas are the local adaptation of Spanish espadrilles. These alpargatas, from Curití, Santander, are recognisable by their use of natural fique fibres, a renewable, rehabilitating plant indispensible to the region. --- Bronze Jewellery, from Bogotá, Distrito Capital: Produced by an artisan couple in the capital, Bogotá, the couple work elements and techniques from Colombia’s culture and history into all their pieces. --- Indigenous Mochilla Bags, from the Guajira Peninsula: These coveted and iconic bags are produced by the Wayuu people of the Guajira Peninsula, and are known for their use of striking colours and geometric representations. A tradition passed down from generation to generation, each bag is unique to the weaver. ---
