Design by Coral Hernandez
Designer Coral Hernandez Finol comes from Venezuela and works for Custo Barcelona, Desigual and Mango, among others. Coral found inspiration for this design in two places. The first was Venezuela's beautiful orchids, the country's national flower, and the second was the indigenous myth of Maa'ala. According to the oral tradition of the Wayuu indigenous people, Maa'ala was a free-spirited young woman who refused to marry. Out of anger and revenge, the man who was in love with her transformed her into a snake. From then on, Maa'ala lived as a reptile and roamed freely through the Caribbean desert instead of having to marry and bear children in the polygynous Wayuu society.

Made in Venezuela
This clutch 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.
