  • We are very pleased to present our new products tomorrow @ornaris_show 🎊the baskets are made in the Venezuelan Amazon by the #Warao people. We are so proud of adding this community work to our offering.  We have been trying to develop these straps since 2013, but never found a partner who elaborates leather and derivative goods. Finally we did in #Bucaramanga! Please note that the leather part is made out of @pinatex, so out of pineapple 🍍 leaves! The straps are made by the #wayuu people in Colombia with different pre-colonial techniques. Usually men elaborate the thicker straps called Kutpera, which are used to saddle donkeys, being a very important animal for the Caribbean indigenous. The Wayuu show their appreciation towards
their animals by decorating them with colorful ribbons.
These wide braided straps are strong and durable; if a thread breaks, the whole strap does 
not break, because the thread is twisted and strongly tightened with a wooden needle, a dense fabric is thus created. The threads are twisted, split and led through the resulting gap. This braiding technique is called ply-splitting and was first documented in the 1940s.  #mamatierra #ngo #❤️ #ethicalfashion #changemaker #consciousconsumer  #empoweringwomen #imadeyourclothes #beatpoverty #fairfashion #slowfashion #fightingpoverty #handmade #sustainablefashion #zürich #boho #bohostyle #fashrev #fashionrevolution #baden #fashionsustain #challengefashion #ethicalliving #ornaris #neonyt #empowerment #pinatex
