+ ON LOCALE
At first, we watched for locals who were already making an impact in their community. Our relationship with our first national partners began as an informal, organic crossing-of-paths. We have met many wonderful people in South Asia, but this time it was different. There was a humility and peace that drew us to them. You could call it divine. We slowly became friends and then basically became family.
We are a sustainable and ethical brand that produces handbags and fashion accessories that supports and preserve indigenous hand craftsmanship.
Our products enhance the techniques of some of the most highly skilled artisans in Colombia and celebrates the unknown tribes that are part of our history and ethnic origins. Each CASTELLANO product carries the essence of a traditional indigenous tribe which should not be forgotten.

Our ethnic clutch is brought to life by Wayuu artisans in the La Guajira peninsula in northern Colombia. It takes up to 10 days to weave by hand with just a single strand of thread, making a very tight and strong weave. The pattern is a symbol of the Wayuu culture and a fine example of their ethnic lifestyle.
Social Impact :
