Description

Product Story

This box was made from fique (an Andean plant) in southern Colombia.

The manufacturing technique of the Leïva box is actually a great family story. Our craftswoman learned from her father – a farmer – the weaving with fique yarn. During harvest time, the family weaved the baskets where they stored the crop.

Our artisan decided to continue this heritage and redesign these baskets by adding an elegant touch and sober colors.
