South America indigenous accessories are little by little, getting fashion recognition. We are talking about pieces that have been fashionable for ages in countries, as Colombia and Brazil, and now they are making fashion statements worldwide. And we love it.

Case in point, the Tagua Nut used for creating rings, bracelets and necklaces are now a source of inspiration by many new designers.  This crazy, chunky and organic nut, found in the Amazon, is molded and dyed to create the perfect tropical vibe.  In addition, you will not only be making a fashion statement by carrying this unique staple, but local artisans are being paid fair wages for creating them.

Another example is the Arhuacos Wayuu Mochila, created only by the Northern pre-columbian Wayuu tribe in Colombia. Each mochila is a unique hand woven bag that tells a story of the artisan who created it.  The production of the bags usually take two to three months as artisans craft each bag to preserve the tradition rather than to make money, therefore they are not mass produced.   For this reasons no two bag are the same.  Now, fashion Mecca J.Crew has finally acknowledged the impeccable craftsmanship found in these bags and launched its own version of the mochila.

I think it is the perfect time to go ethnic!
