Shipping calculated at checkout.


The NATURAL PLACEMATS - WERREGUE AND WOOD with a "Tears of mother earth" print are 100% handmade by artisans from the Wounaan indigenous community in Colombia using a natural fiber taken from the werregue palm tree to create the core base of the piece and then knitting it by hand with natural fiber taken from the same plant. A technique this community is widely known for. 

The "Tears" print is part of the community's symbology that represents their believes and culture. It tells a story about how mother earth cries to nurture the earth but at the same time the earth evaporates the "tears" back to the sky giving them back to mother earth. This is why on the design you can see lines that look like the are coming and going.

These pieces make part of the HOME collection exclusives for EL DORADO, an edit of handmade pieces created by different artisan communities from around Colombia.
