Caña Flecha Poufs

$935.00

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.

Leadtime 1-2 weeks.

OUTDOOR USAGE
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 discoloration over time.

    Board-formed leather shade with brass hardware.

    The lamps in this collection are inspired by Colombia’s equestrian heritage, layered with a jewel-toned color palette that takes inspiration from the works of Colombian artist Fernando Botero.

    Talabartero translates as ‘master saddler,’ and the collection draws upon the expert craftsmanship and fine detailing—the stitching, the braiding and the hand tooling—that characterize the best of vintage saddles from the area.

    Each lamp is crafted from natural grain board-formed leather, guided by the same formation techniques as those used in fashioning saddles, with curves reminiscent of the figures in Botero’s paintings.

    We’ve partnered with master craftsman Edgar Beltrán Jaramillo and the skilled team in his Bogotá-based workshop to bring this collection to life.

    Leadtime 8-10 weeks.

    The clay–known as barro negro–from which these table lamps are made is exclusive to the Sierra Madre mountains in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. Local legend holds that the clay is blessed.

    The deep, inky color is the result of the unique properties of this indigenous clay combined with a firing process in which the smoke and heat—and deprivation of oxygen—creates an intense carbonization effect.

    Prior to being fired in an underground, wood-burning pit, the pieces are meticulously burnished with a curved quartz stone, marking the clay with a subtle sheen.

    Created in collaboration with maestro Amando Pedro, our long time friend and collaborator, in his workshop in San Bartolo Coyotepec, we drew inspiration for the shape from ancient cántaros, the traditional vessels used to transport and store mezcal.

    Leadtime 4-6 weeks.
