This assortment of chic natural fiber earrings are made from Caña Flecha, a sugar cane like plant that can only be 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 1500's and weaves them into various geometric patterns creating these unique earrings.

Artisans at the fair trade organization Joyeria Semilla are known for creating jewelry from materials readily available in their environment including seeds, natural fibers and leaves. Joyeria Semilla’s objectives are to create new jobs, to revive Colombia's traditional handicrafts and to better manage their natural resources.
