Our Casa Chiqui Werregue Table Lamp 25x65cm features a two-piece design with a basket base woven by hand by the Wounaan Indians in Colombia. This handmade basket is woven by hand with a spiral technique in werregue fiber; which is a palm with a thorny trunk that can reach up to 200 meters high. Weaving this fiber is a work of art and through it, various types of products can be produced, with modern designs and figures representative of the Wounaan ethnic group.
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.
