Caña Flecha Poufs
Grano de Arroz
This collection takes inspiration from sombrero vueltiaos — traditional Colombian hats — which have for many generations been made by the Zenú people in the northern reaches of the country. Working together with master artisans from the small town of Tuchin, we have ‘reimagined’ this weaving tradition into new forms.
The poufs are made from caña flecha — an indigenous local palm fiber — which is dyed using color extracted from local leaves and plants. Long thin strips of the fiber are finely braided together into strands which are then sewn into a series of concentric circles.
We’ve designed the poufs to have complementary but contrasting patterning on top and bottom. Pairs can be positioned as identical matches – or one with one side up, and the other with the other side up.
26” diameter, 16” tall
These poufs are not intended for outdoor usage over any extended period of time. If they are to be used outside, it’s best to maintain them in a covered area where they are not exposed to moisture or direct sunlight. The caña flecha that they are woven from is a natural fiber (think: your favorite sun hat) and susceptible to fading and degradation over time.
