About the Designer
Makua is inspired by the beauty and exuberance of the landscapes of Colombia, its birds, its forests, and the countless kinds of butterflies. Makua pieces are crafted by 60 women of 2 different ethnic groups in Colombia: the Emberá and the Kuna. Makua helps these women continue to develop the techniques passed down generation to generation so that their ancestral knowledge can be preserved.
