“la Mina de Oro” Santa Elena / Colombia

THE TRIP After voyaging through the mountainous forest of Santa Elena we finally reached our destination. The beauty of this place was overwhelming. A small lagoon with green-yellow waters looked like an abandoned and flooded mine surrounded by wet moss and colored-knotted rocks. This deep water must be full of secrets... An intensive carpet of vegetation covered the surroundings. We came to rest near a red bush with green thorns which seemed to protect us from the unknown. Never mind what comes, our journey must go on. walking around, floating in time.

“Malla Turca� Silver necklaces and bracelets handmade of delicate wire-netting technique (artisan: Juan)

EL ARTE DEL MACRAMÉ The technique of macramé dates back to the thirteenth century. It's thought that Arabian weavers began the skill by knotting the additional fiber at the edges of loomed fabrics. With sailors this beautiful technique started to spread all over the world, and over hundreds of years it would pass trough several cultures and manners of elaboration developing an amazing way of creating unique handmade Items. Enamoured by this knotting method, we started to use macramé In our first collection in summer 2012 which attracted big attention. We had the privilege to work with Willy, a young colombian artisan. Jungle Folk dedicated an intensive working period to design new patterns and forms of macramé, in order to introduce to you a 100% handmade and fashionable clothing piece.
