Indigenous design
The Wayuu indigenous people are designers themselves! They draw inspiration from natural elements such as river currents, animal tracks, plants, birds or constellations of stars. This is how Mother Earth is reflected in this design.

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.
