Designed by Valentina Hoyos, the Trenza collection is a range of knitted sisal rugs and cushions handmade in Central Colombia by native communities. Environmentally sustainable, this collection is crafted using raw materials growing in abundance in Colombia as well as vegetable dyes made with ingredients such as beetroot, onion or wood shavings. Cultivating and processing sisal fibre has been a long-lasting Colombian tradition, one that deserves to be celebrated.

About the designer

Valentina Hoyos

Valentina Hoyos established her company in 1998, aspiring to produce handmade organic textiles with an environmental and social consciousness. For over 30 years, Valentina has worked alongside Colombian native communities, farmers and associations, with the desire to share and create together.

Her collections are the fruit of lengthy research. Local natural materials like sisal, cotton, wool, bamboo and native seeds are cultivated and prepared for production without the use of any chemicals.
“I wish bamboo could be seen as a replacement for illegal logging. I was born and raised in an area where sisal farming and bamboo plantations were embedded within our lifestyle. They both mean a lot to me.”

Valentina Hoyos’ vision also embraces those who skilfully craft her collections; giving nearly 250 Colombian women from different places and cultures, the opportunity to live a dignified life in their craft, with fair wages and access to education.
