Crochet!
Indigenous women in Colombia have crocheted this resistant Etui lovingly stitch by stitch. Here the indigenous people themselves are the designers! Their designs are based on natural elements like river currents, animal tracks or star constellations. The quality of the handicraft is a sign of their intelligence, skill and learning ability.

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

Design inspired in the popular believe in damage spells
The design is linked to “Mal de Ojo”, which is a South American popular belief of the "evil eye". Thus, "Mal de Ojo" means that people can be harmed by disapproving glances, or die or that their possessions could be damaged. Usually it is believed that an amulet should be worn in order to counteract the evil eye. Therefore, the eye on the clutch should protect its bearer from the envy of others.

Empowering indigenous women
Mama Tierra offers indigenous women existence-saving wages and financial independence. The focus is on women because they ensure the well-being of the family, ensuring its income and educating the children. The woman is the strongest link in many indigenous societies, but this is particularly true in the Wayuu culture, as they have a matrilineal kinship structure.

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