Casa Chiqui Jarron De Werregue Con Hilos De Cobre

Casa Chiqui

Each graphic Werregue basket is created the Chocoan Jungle of Colombia by women of the indigenous Wounaan or Noanama population. The tribe settled on the riverbanks of Low San Juan generations ago and continue to live in the heart of nature. Over centuries, the women have honed the skill of weaving fibers from the “Werregue” palm. Natural dyes such as Achiote or Puchama, which women sow in their home gardens, are used to decorate the baskets. Their graphics are symbolic or figurative, alluding to situations of daily life, elements of nature, beliefs, or images of the past.
