Choosing artisan means supporting a form of economic development that has deep meaning, one that originates from and is rooted in the uniqueness of people and place.

We feel honoured to work with brands that are committed to sustainable and ethical practices, and whose products are handmade and carry a real identity. Latin American designers don’t simply want to sell, they aspire to have a lasting and positive impact on their communities

Story

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.

Celebrating Heritage

After years of traveling the world collecting unique treasures, Colombian socialite Chiqui de Echavarria opened the doors to her renowned store in the historic center of Cartagena, Colombia. Constantly evolving, Casa Chiqui has introduced a unique line of jewelry and accessories designed by Chiqui and produced by 94 local artisans from indigenous and rural communities from all over Colombia. Mostly women heads of household, they help bring Chiqui’s designs to life using centuries-old techniques and natural, locally sourced fibers like iraca and cumare palm leaves.
