Castellano is a fair trade sustainable luxury brand that collaborates with the indigenous artisans in North Colombia. Each bag, with each weave and stitch tells a story of tradition and empowerment.
Inspired by exceptional craftsmanship and unique patterns CASTELLANO 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. Each item is made by hand and is the result of a traditional weaving technique passed down from generation to generation.
Castellano transforms traditional ethnic creations into luxury fashion pieces and donates a portion of the proceeds to social programmes that seek to empower women and their local communities in Colombia. Our project support the Wayuu and Arhuaca people who preserve their weaving skills and cultural heritage which are internationally renowned for their quality, patterns and colours.
