Inspired by indigenous mythology
Desigual Designer Coral Hernandez drew inspiration from Kalaira, the Totem animal of the Uriana Clan. According to the Wayuu, family members of the Jaguar clan also inherit the qualities of the jaguar such as courage, solidarity and intelligence.

Made in Venezuela
The clutch was lovingly handmade by Wayuu indigenous peoples in Venezuela. In the 1970s, the Venezuelan tapestry was very popular. From the Fira de Barcelona to the MoMa Museum in New York, the Wayuu crafts could be admired in museums all over the world. The Indigenous peoples wind the yarn on a so-called weaver's shuttle and push the thread through the fabric. This time-consuming technique went out of fashion and many artisans lost a major source of income. The MAMA TIERRA design team has now revitalized the technique and design of these tapestries and transformed them into beautiful clutches and cushion covers which enjoy great popularity.

Empowering indigenous women
MAMA TIERRA's vision is the self-determination of indigenous women. For this purpose, our organization sells accessories crafted by indigenous peoples and thereby offers  them existence-saving wages and financial independence.
