Inspired by indigenous mythology 
Birds play an important role in indigenous myths. For example, the Wayuu believe that the earth was ruled by birds before it was inhabited by humans. Even today, birds represent the clans of the Wayuu. For example, the eagle represents the Ipuana clan and stands for their mythical ancestor.

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.
