Weaving Recycled Plastic and Color
From the lands of southern Colombia, in Huila, comes the story of Emiliano, an artisan whose skill and creativity have woven a bond between tradition and modernity. Along with his family, Emiliano has transformed “zuncho,” a plastic fiber derived from recycling, into a unique expression of art and functionality.
Over 50 years ago, Emiliano began his journey into “zuncho” weaving, a skill he learned from his father, Don Orlando. Originally, they collected industrial surplus of this plastic fiber, giving it a new purpose to create traditional baskets in the local markets. Over time, this technique evolved, becoming a softer, more subtle, and flexible material adorned with vibrant colors.
Emiliano has shared his knowledge with his entire family, siblings, children, and neighbors, becoming an invaluable heritage that sustains his community. His boundless creativity and mastery of color bring to life unique and unrepeatable pieces. Every day, his support and experience inspire us to explore new designs for everyday life in the city.
Emiliano’s story is a testament to the power of tradition and evolving craftsmanship. His expert hands not only create objects but also weave connections with history and the future. By choosing a piece created by Emiliano, you choose to carry with you a piece of southern Colombia and his heart.
