One-of-a-kind home decor fine art woven vase. 

All the workmanship is handcrafted by indigenous artisans of the Wounaan tribe in Colombia. Each art piece is constructed of palm leaf threads sustainably harvested from indigenous-owned lands in the rainforest of Colombia's Pacific coast.

This raw material travels over 400 miles via canoe, portage, motorboat, and a 12-hour bus ride to arrive in the hands of the artists who are internally displaced in the nation's capital.  Once in Bogota, the women strip the leaves apart, split them into fine threads, wash them, lay them in the sun to dry, and then dye them using vegetable dyes or food dyes.  Once the threads are ready, the women thread a 3-in long needle and begin sewing coils together with nearly water-tight stitches at 2 stitches per millimeter.
