Located between the cities of Barranquilla and Cartagena is Chorrera: a small rural town projected as the artisan and commercial showcase of the northern Atlantic region in Colombia. On the year 2002, a group of women came together and founded the Artisan Association of Chorrera and in 2011 the brand Arte & Tejido was born. They have dedicated themselves to the development of knitted products made with a crochet technique. They use both natural and artificial fibers, including leather to develop the well-known Colombian “mochilas”.
