Mama Tierra to showcase handicrafts of indigenous women

Mama Tierra will showcase its accessories developed from revolutionary materials by indigenous women of Colombia and Venezuela, presenting designs based on social anthropological research at Neonyt (January 14-16, Berlin). The focus of its work is on livelihood of indigenous women and respect for Mother Earth, thereby solving social issues with fashion design.

All accessories of the ‘Terra’ collection consist of Mexican cactus leaves processed into eco-leather; whose stable leaf fibres offer an equivalent substitute for animal leather. The yarn used is GOTS certified cotton from Peru. Since most indigenous textiles in the Caribbean are made from plastic based yarns, the production of the Mama Tierra accessories, thus contributes to a reduction in plastic waste in Colombia’s most rural area called La Guajira.

Mama Tierra places high demands on design - the patterns that adorn the accessories were designed by Patrizia Stadler and Dr. Lourdes Grollimund. It is not without reason that they have a recognisable connection to the Caribbean: the design combines modern elements with those from the mythology of the Caribbean Wayuu people such as plants, animals, the sun and darkness. Patrizia is a Swiss multi-faceted artist, working as a painter, illustrator and graphic designer. Patrizia’s illustrations have been included in the ‘200 Best Illustrators Worldwide 18/19’ publication by Lürzers Archiv. Lürzer's Archiv presents creatively outstanding campaigns from all over the world and enjoys a high reputation in many countries.

One of Mama Tierra's main concerns is to preserve the traditional handicrafts of the indigenous people. Mama Tierra therefore works together with indigenous women from Colombia and Venezuela, who partly produce bags and cases in traditional techniques from pre-colonial times and can thus secure their livelihood.
