At ALWA, we take extra care to meet personally each local artisan we partner with.
The Iraca Palm baskets are handwoven by artisans native from Sandona, a village in Colombia.
Handmade and therefore Unique
The iraca is a tropical palm that produces robust fibers.
Usually, men are responsible for selecting and collecting the fibers. After drying and – in some cases – dying it, women, girls and the elderly start to weave.
