Colombia’s textile tradition dates to pre-Columbian times. On the Pacific Coast and near the border with Panama, the Kuna culture is renowned for their molas, cotton panels featuring geometric figures and animals, meant to reflect the heavens and the natural world. The Guambiano, in the Valle de Cauca around Silvia, are known for the striking blue and fuchsia dresses that they weave themselves, as well as blankets. In La Guajira, the Wayúu have an extremely complex crochet technique used for making bags, hammocks, and traditional costumes.
