Our Choices of Fique:
Although there are a diverse amount of choices in natural fibers, the main issue of sustainability in these materials are the consumption of water in the process. With fique, little water is needed to grow the plant due to its ability to store water in its leaves for a longer period. Even better, it does not need chemicals or pesticides to grow since they are not often exposed to plagues.
Originally woven to carry coffee and cocoa, the crafting of fique plants has scattered numerous seeds of utility across Colombia as long as history can remember, history that you can carry in our CARLOTAfique bags.
