"We aim to rescue the traditional Caribbean chair, reinventing the designs, recovering the techniques and displaying innovation through the materials we use. A whole range of furniture designed and inspired by the Colombian tropics."
The Colombian people are faithful of their weaving tradition. Over the years, this ancestral knowledge has been present in rural areas where agricultural activities and armed conflict replaced many of their handcrafted gestures. However, they have managed to adapt the original techniques using non-traditional materials. Plastic cords and strings, such as zuncho and cabuya, as well as other items originally used in the banana plantations of the Caribbean region, are now conceived as the main materials for the fabrications of chairs. Tucurinca was born from the revival of these ancestral techniques.
