Fresh Idea for this Year: Help Colombian Artists


I have met many talented Colombians who use the material of their land- fruit and plants seeds, bamboo or natural fibers and convert them into nice necklaces, bracelets, earrings, bags or any other object to decorate a body or a house.

I have decided to support these artists. They are nice mixture of human beings: indigenous women from Embera Chamí indigenous group, school teacher that loves enamel, older gentleman who knows how to conquer bamboo or native indians from La Libertad community in the Amazon Rainforest.

My idea is very simple: I will upload artists products photos on my webpage, you can check it out and if you find something you would like to have, you can buy it via PayPal or banking transaction! (All products will be listed with price and shipping costs + will be sent directly from Colombia via regular postal service).

You will know who makes the item you like, you will be able to check some pictures and read artists short stories.

So what do you think? Will it work?
