Inspiration for our Werregue Collection Lamps is born from the lush jungles of northern Colombia. Woven by hand and colored with herbs native to the San Juan River delta, they’re a reimagination of centuries-old vessels created by the Wounaan tribe.
Each piece is a full month in the making. Once harvested, the fibers are left to dry in the sun and individually hand rubbed to bestow a distinctive sheen. A central cord — the soul of the basket — is then twisted in a spiral formation, which thinner fibers then carefully embrace. The process yields an object of remarkable strength, something dense enough to carry water.
The beauty of our Werregue Collection is a marriage of the durable and the bold — the exact and the organic — a mix of contrasts representing both balance and harmony.
