This sustenance, as well as their community and culture, have for years been under threat; first as a result of the internal conflict in Colombia, and more recently by the construction of a new road which destroyed most of their iraca crops. The community is fighting to have their crops replaced, as the loss of just one of these precious plants represents about 200 small woven baskets they could sell in exchange for food, medicine, and solar panels.
These exquisite small woven baskets are hand woven by the women in the community. The fine beading detail makes them unique and perfect for any occasion.
