Description

These colorful baskets are made by the Cubeo people who live along the banks of the Vaupez river in Puerto Tolima, Vaupez.

They are made from natural fibers from Guaramo, Juajua, Cumare, Chambira and Bejuco Yare which grow in the dense jungle.

Traditionally, the baskets have different household uses, but the women have incorporated more contemporary colors and design elements in order to make them more attractive to buyers outside their community.
