Vegan leather bag
This bag is made of cactus leaves processed into eco-leather, whose stable leaf fibres are an equivalent substitute for animal leather. The motif on the front is handcrocheted by Wayuu indigenous women in Colombia. Their creativity, expertise and learning abilities are reflected in the quality of their handicrafts. A high-quality bag is characterized by a tight weave and is created using three techniques: vertical weaving, "atulush" knotting and crocheting. With this project, Mama Tierra offers financial independence to indigenous women in La Guajira, an area between Colombia and Venezuela.

Design by Dr. Lourdes Grollimund
Dr. Lourdes Grollimund, president of Mama Tierra, designed this piece. Lourdes researches the western tendencies, seasonal color styles and motifs in a benchmarking analysis. This results in irresistible, high quality accessories.
