Swiss design by Patrizia Stalder
MAMA TIERRA sets high standards for the design of its accessories and often works with exceptional designers. One of them is Patrizia Stalder from Basel. Her illustrations were included in the publication "200 Best Illustrators Worldwide 2018/2019" by Lürzer's Archiv, which selects creatively outstanding design from all around the world. Patrizia's designs are often guided by her love of the Caribbean and for this design, she was inspired by the indigenous artisans that MAMA TIERRA supports.

Made in Venezuela
The cushion cover 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. 

100% Polyacrylic yarn, Azo dye-free, Iso-Standard 9001: 2000.
