Product Story

These unique products were originally made by the Chimila, an indigenous group that was subjugated by the Spanish invasion in the 1700s.

These ancient practices were passed down from mother to daughter and have evolved with each generation’s creativity.

They still use the palm as well as a variety of plant-based materials to colour the products, including seeds, leaves and tree bark, creating a gorgeous earthy feel.

Each placemat takes 2 days to make and are made in El Cesar, Colombia.
