Our Casa Chiqui Werregue Container in Black and Gold features a geometric design in a handwoven silhouette crafted by artisans in the indigenous Wounaan community in Colombia. The werregue containers represent the ancestral culture of the Wounaan and in each piece is captured the identity of the artisan who makes it, spending up to three months on each piece. The indigenous people weave the werregue fiber, which is a palm with a thorny trunk that can reach up to 200 meters high. Baskets like these were one of the first creations of the Waunaán culture used for transporting water and food. A truly exclusive piece that nowadays is a decorative dream piece that gives a touch of perfection to any space.
