Colombian People are a culture of hard working and talented individuals. Every product we offer at Maco is the result of inspiration and many hours of hard work. Each piece is a work of art in itself impossible to replicate and crafted with expertise and skill developed and handed down over generations. Each serves as a testimony of specific cultures and ancestral traditions.
Our makers come from different cultural and traditional backgrounds. Our baskets and bags are made by Indigenous women from different parts of the country. Some are well known in the world such as the Wayuu, the Arhuaco, the Guambiano or the Kuna. Others such as the Kankuamo or the Curripaco are more obscure communities that we hope to bring the attention and recognition that they deserve. All of them have unique traditions and beliefs. Together they make up the social fiber of the country.
