Artist: Indigenous Artists from Leticia

Origin: Leticia, Amazonas, Colombia

Manufacturing time: 4 Weeks

Technique: Ancestral Manual Weaving

Materials: Cumare

The cumare or chambira palm yields a natural fiber, obtained by removing the outer layer of the stem. The dyes are also natural, derived from seeds, roots, leaves, clay, flowers, fruits, and barks. These materials are washed, macerated, and cooked to create the dyes. The cumare tree has many thorns on its trunk. For the thread, the heart is cut without mistreating the plant, using a hooked knife or crescent-shaped blade. It's a very laborious process. The threads must be unraveled, washed, cooked, and dried for two or three days in the sun before being prepared for weaving.

Package: Cardboard (Räpina Paberivabrik AS, 90% of the raw material is waste paper), reuse of cardboard waste (OÜ Järsi).
