Each ornamental jewellery is exquisitely designed using the ancestral techniques of embroidery. The origin of such masterful artisanship to create these individualistic pieces can be traced back to the pre-Colombian era, when the indigenous population of Chibcha were famous for gold work. The spirit of their original craftsmanship is revived via these gorgeous hoop earrings and hundreds of other exquisite handicrafts.
At Bochica, we aim to showcase the artisanal products carefully crafted by women of Colombia. It is an opportunity for native artisans to earn an income through fair trade. Moreover, it’s a massive effort to help keep alive the crafty traditions of Colombian indigenous communities.
