Joyeria Semilla - Caña Flecha

MG:Artisan-Zenu-1_240x152Joyeria Semilla meaning Seed Jewelry is a small fair-trade workshop in the Andean town of Villa de Leyva, Colombia. Girasol Taborda, a local artisan and social entrepreneur, started the workshop in the mid-1990s.

Joyeria Semilla’s objective is three-folds; to create new jobs, revive Colombia's handicrafts sector and to motivate locals to better manage their natural resources. The organization works primarily with socially and economically disadvantaged youths, single mothers and people with disabilities in the area. The company offers free training in product design, technical training and marketing to new members. Joyeria Semilla has trained them in the craft of jewelry-making.

Caña Flecha is a sugar cane like plant that is only found along the coastal regions of Colombia, South America. The Zenu Tribe cultivates the thin stalk-like leaves using processes and techniques that date back to the 1500s and weaves them into various geometric patterns creating these unique bracelets.

These beautiful bracelets are crafted by some of the remaining Zenu Indians of Colombia. They braid strips of caña flecha, that has been used by their ancestors for centuries. These folks are loyal to their cultural legacy but had been stripped of their riches, lands and possessions by colonial settlers. They're using their ancestor's pre-Columbian weaving techniques to create jewelry for you with contemporary designs.

All of these fairly traded bracelets have 2 finished ends so you can expand them to put it on your wrist easily.
