Every Escaleras al Cielo cross-body bag is created using all-natural, local wool from the native Arhuacas community in Colombia. The symbols and designs woven into each piece are authentic and unique; each artisan chooses a pattern, design, or symbol to weave that represents themselves and the world around them in the time the bag is made. Created by local artisans and purchased at a fair trade price, this bag features an entrancing zig-zag design and is made for boho-chic heaven.
Handmade in Colombia.
10 1/2" x 9 1/4"
Colombia is the 4th largest economy in South America and is one of the world’s 17 megadiverse countries having over 5,000 species of endemic plants and touching both the Pacific and Caribbean coastlines. Just like Colombia’s diverse geography, their culture is a poetic blend of indigenous and European influences. Our Colombian products are bright, colorful, and beautifully patterned and will definitely be a conversation starter.
