GOTS-certified cotton
The yarn used is GOTS certified cotton from Peru. So far, most of the native textiles in the Caribbean are made of polyacrylic, for which plastic is needed. By using and spreading GOTS, Mama Tierra not only introduces sustainable materials to the area, but also helps to reduce plastic waste.

Crochet
This bag was lovingly handmade by Wayuu indigenous women. Their creativity, expertise and learning abilities are reflected in the quality of their handicrafts. A high-quality bag is characterized by a tight weave and is created using three techniques: vertical weaving, "atulush" knotting and crocheting. With this project, Mama Tierra offers financial independence to indigenous women in La Guajira, an area between Colombia and Venezuela.

Design based on indigenous mythology 
Birds play an important role in indigenous people’s myth. For example, believe the Wayuu that before humans lived on earth, it was ruled by birds. Even today birds like the eagle represents the Ipuana Wayuu clan. Birds stand for a mythical ancestor who emblematically marks the family groups as a totem.

Empowering Women
Mama Tierra offers pre-payments and working material to indigenous women, thereby strengthening their financial independence. The focus is on women because they ensure the well-being of the family, securing its income and educating the children.
