The Wayuu call this band “Kutpera”. Traditionally, it is used as an element in the donkey saddle. Donkeys are important farm animals for the Wayuu indigenous people. The Wayuu honour their animals by decorating them with such colourful bands. Usually the men make the straps for the donkeys. The Wayuu also use the kutpera as a very resistant type of shoulder strap for their traditional bags.

Vegan!
These accessories are made of cactus leaves processed into eco-leather. The cactus stable leaf fibers surprisingly offer an equivalent substitute for animal leather.

The yarn used is obtained from recycled PET bottles - no less than 48 PET bottles are needed to produce one kilogram of yarn. This is done by spinning granulate obtained from the bottles into polyester yarn. The production of the accessories thus not only saves crude oil, but also contributes to a reduction in plastic waste.
