Inspired by Indigenous mythology
According to the oral tradition of the Wayuu Indigenous peoples, 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 bewitched her into a snake. From then on, Maa'ala lived as a reptile and roamed freely through the Caribbean desert instead of being forced to marry and bear children in the polygynous Wayuu society. 

Swiss Design by Patrizia Stalder
MAMA TIERRA sets high standards for the design of its accessories and often works with exceptional designers. One of them is Patrizia Stalder from Basel. Her illustrations were included in the publication "200 Best Illustrators Worldwide 2018/2019" by Lürzer's Archiv, which selects creatively outstanding design from all around the world. Patrizia's designs are often guided by her love of the Caribbean and at MAMA TIERRA she combines modern elements with those from the mythology of the Caribbean Wayuu people who make the accessories.

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.
