Mami Watta is an artistic movement reconnecting with traditional knowlege, producing unique styles of jewelry and accessories that support the artisanship and hardwork of our Indigenous artists.
This wearable artwork has been produced by artisans from the Embera Chami tribe of Colombia. It carries hours of work, calculation and imagination. Through the beadworks we can see a lot of references to colours from the natural environment and the Embera Cosmovision.
