Caña Flecha from Colombia

by Louise Davies | March 22, 2013



We've just received our new selection of Caña Flecha products from Colombia. The clutch and bracelets are inspired by the traditional skills of artisans throughout Colombia. Contemporary designs are combined with age-old techniques, natural materials and sustainable methods of production to ensure each product is truly exceptional.

Caña Flecha is a type of palm, native to Colombia; the Caña Flecha is dyed with fruits, vegetables, and plants. Once it is dried it is hand-woven by artisans using traditional Pre-Colombian techniques that combine indigenous and contemporary designs.
