Description from Laviva Home
This collection takes inspiration from sombrero vueltiaos traditional colombian hats which have for many generations been made by the zenú people in the northern reaches of the country. Working together with master artisans from the small town of tuchin, we have reimagined’ this weaving tradition into new forms.
The poufs are made from caña flecha an indigenous local palm fiber which is dyed using color extracted from local leaves and plants. Long thin strips of the fiber are finely braided together into strands which are then sewn into a series of concentric circles.
Weve designed the poufs to have complimentary but contrasting patterning on top and bottom. Pairs can be positioned as identical matches – or one with one side up, and the other with the other side up.
