Weaving Luxury - How We Do It
Two Dome lampshades.
The fibres used in our designs come from fique plants grown and processed by local families in the mountainous region of Santander, Colombia. To extract the fibres from the leaves, they cut the outermost layer of the plant –so that it may continue growing– and manually remove the pulp. The resulting fibres are dried in the sun, while the pulp is used as fertiliser in nearby crops.
The dried fibres are then immersed in boiling water, dyed with natural dyes, and once again sun-dried. Next, they comb the fibres to soften them and separate the short fibres from the long ones, as only the latter are used to weave the carpets in manual looms once transferred to Bogotá.
