New York handbag label NATIVA embraces traditional craftsmanship by employing sustainable design practices, working with native Colombian artisans who meticulously weave each piece by hand.

Founder Ana Maria Echavarria draws inspiration from the earthy palette of Latin American landscapes to create artisanal totes, clutches and cross-body bags - all made from colourful vegetable-tanned leather and suede, a dyeing method that uses much less water and natural tannins to develop a deep patina that fades beautifully with age.
