During a visit home last summer, I walked the local markets of Medellín during the Feria de Las Flores (the “Flower Festival”). I was instantly taken by the colorful stands filled with unique pieces and the rich stories of the artisans who bring their creations into the city.
I discovered so many beautiful handmade pieces and spoke to many vendors. I learned about their journeys to the markets and how the products they sell are not only a vital piece of their livelihood, but also a way they are able to keep their art and traditions alive.
The beaded flower earrings and the colorful macramé bracelets are small but meaningful representations of the beauty that the artisans of Colombia offer. We are honored to share these with you.
