About Maco

 

            

 

In a very distant town there was a time when the sun and the moon began to dance. At the same moment, something began to grow between the rivers and the mountains, something coming from the union of wind and fire, something that no one had seen before, something so beautiful that it was impossible to stop looking at it, something that the people of this town would call Maco.

 

                                                                  

In 2017 Maco emerges as an initiative to educate the public about Colombia and its cultural diversity, while promoting Native and small town craftsmanship. We traveled through deserts, jungles and mountains to find what was truly unique from each Colombian region and discovered the stories that live within these landscapes. These stories inspire our artisans every day and we work side-by-side  to merge the discipline of fashion retail, art and tradition.

Colombian people are a culture of hard working, talented individuals. Every product in Maco is the result of inspiration and many hours of hard work. Each piece is a piece of art in itself, impossible to replicate and each serves as a testimony of specific cultures and ancient traditions. 

 

Maco's Mission is to promote economic advancement by developing sustainable and self-reliant communities that depend on their handmade craftsmanship to elevate their living standards. With your purchase you will be contributing to the improvement of these communities as many depend on the sale of their products as their primary source of income.

Thanks for you support.

Love,
