Inspired by Frida Kahlo
Did you know that Frida Kahlo had Indigenous roots? Her mother was a Tehuana! In her artistic work, Frida addressed post-colonialism as well as gender and racial inequality in the Mexican society. She often wore indigenous dresses, braids and flowers, sending highly political statements about feminism and indigenous cultural identity in the 1940s. Her example shows how fashion can bring relevant issues to public attention.

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.
