Sacred tissues: culture to become in fashion

The fabric is involved in various activities of Colombian cultures. For the Arhuaca community, the tissues represent their life history, their origin, and the strength of the tribe. For them, more than a craft it is the way to create, exist and reproduce the echo of their community.

Therefore, the base of his handbag begins to be woven in the form of a spiral representing the movements of Serankwa (the first child that the Universal Mother had), which represents the sacred and ancestral of his work.

In this way, in Claudia Akel’s, some of our creations are an expression of Arhuaco art. Representing in our handbags, the diversity, and trajectory of them; carrying their cultural identity as a spokesperson.
