This design was created by the Venezuelan designer Coral Hernandez Finol, who designs patterns for Custo Barcelona, Desigual and Mango, among others. Coral's most important source of inspiration for the design is the women's movement!

Vegan Leather Bag
This bag is made of cactus leaves processed into eco-leather, whose stable leaf fibres are an equivalent substitute for animal leather. The motif on the front is hand-knotted with the famous tapestry technique of the Wayuu indigenous peoples of Venezuela. Venezuela is the second poorest country in South America, but the production of accessories for Mama Tierra has become a secure source of income for the indigenous peoples. In the 1970s, Wayuu tapestry or pictorial art was particularly popular. From the Fira de Barcelona to the MoMa in New York, Wayuu craftsmanship could be seen in museums around the world. However, tapestry went out of fashion. Mama Tierra's design team has now transformed these tapestries into beautiful cases, pillowcases and bags, which are very popular.

Empowering indigenous women
Mama Tierra's vision is to enable indigenous women to lead self-determined and financially independent lives. We do this by distributing the accessories produced by Wayuu Indians in their homeland under fair conditions.
