This assortment of geometric 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.
