Design from Coral Hernandez
Coral Hernandez Finol creates the Mama Tierra designs with passion. As an illustrator, Coral worked for brands like Betsey Johnson, Santoro London, Desigual and Zara. Her work for the fashion company Custo Barcelona led her to participate in the finest fashion collections in Madrid. In 2012, Coral won the "Roland Creative Award" in Japan in the International Latin American Competition.

Design inspired in indigenous mythology
The Maa’ala snake, also present in the “Isashii Collection”, refers to the totemic animal of the Uraliyu clan and is based on one of its myths. Following the Wayuu oral tradition, Maa’ala was a young woman, who refused to marry. So, she was bewitched by a man in love with her. Condemned to be transformed into a snake, Maa’ala preferred to live as a reptile and wander through the Caribbean desert, instead of bearing children and being a wife in the Wayuu polygynist society.

Made in Venezuela
Venezuela is after Haiti the second poorest country in South America! With your order, you are helping the Wayuu indigenous people in Venezuela to secure an income. Each design reflects elements of Mother Nature such as plants, animals, birds, the sun and the darkness. The production of the tapestry is a good source of income for the Wayuu in Venezuela. Especially, because the indigenous people earn in Colombian pesos. Thereby, escaping the high inflation rate in Venezuela.

Material: Polyacrylic yarn 100% produced by the factory Miratex in Colombia. Azo dye-free, Iso-Standard 9001: 2000.
