Our Crafting Process:

From Harvest to Weaving, Unveiling the Artistry of our Sun-Baked Palm Leaf Treasures

Step 1: Harvesting and Selecting Nature's Bounty

Skilled artisans carefully harvest palm leaves from sustainable Colombian sources. These leaves are meticulously chosen for their ideal maturity level, ensuring optimal texture and durability.

Step 2: Drying, Sorting, and Preparation

The freshly harvested palm leaves are sun-dried to perfection, allowing them to acquire the desired suppleness and resilience. Once dried, the leaves are sorted by colour and texture, ensuring a harmonious blend and consistent quality.

Step 3: Masterful Weaving Begins

In the regions of Usiacuri and Guajira, skilled artisans employ traditional weaving techniques passed down through generations. With experienced hands, they skillfully weave the sun-baked palm leaves, transforming them into intricate patterns and designs, each piece reflecting the rich cultural heritage of Colombia.
