Named for their unique shape, “cuatro tetas” baskets are handwoven by a group of artisans in Guapi, Cauca - a small town along Colombia’s Pacific coast. The artisans are part of the Canaán indigenous community consisting of more than 30 families who were displaced by Colombia’s armed conflict 12 years ago.

In recent years, artisans have formed the Asociación de Artesanos la Gloria de Dios - a predominately female weaving collective focused on basketry. Baskets are made from two types of naturally dyed palm fibers and each basket can take up to several weeks to complete. Magda Made works directly with the artisans at prices determined by the weaving collective.

Recommended for indoor use. Keep dry. Avoid bending or packing. Spot clean with damp cloth.

Magda Made’s curated home goods and accessories are entirely handmade by artisans across Colombia with locally- and responsibly-sourced materials.  Founders, Malachi and Shannon, work directly with individual artisans and artisan groups, women’s cooperatives, and local development organizations to create increased economic opportunity for Colombian makers and to support community development programs. By visiting each location where their products are made, their team ensures the artisans they partner with are working in safe conditions and are compensated fairly for their work. Magda Made’s mission is to highlight the beauty and vibrancy of Colombia through their handcrafted products, and to inspire cultural exploration and preservation.
