Big Barbados - KAKI
Our Iraca baskets are handmade by craftswomen using the iraca weaving technique, typical of Colombian tradition. The iraca, or toquilla straw, is a natural fiber that comes from the "Carludovica palmata", from whose leaves are obtained some fine threads that are dyed to give them color. Once dry, the artisans interweave the threads with the different colors to create our baskets/containers.
