OUR HISTORY

The Colombian people are faithful to the weaving tradition of the natives. Over the years, this ancestral knowledge has been present in rural areas where agricultural activities and armed conflict have replaced many of their artisan gestures. Tucurinca is the rebirth of these techniques. We are the rescue of the traditional coastal chair; reinventing the designs, recovering the techniques and innovating in the materials. A whole range of furniture inspired by the Colombian tropics. The perfect mix of traditional techniques and international standards.





OUR TEAM

We are located in Santa Marta; a city with a population of 450,000 inhabitants where 27% are victims of the armed conflict, 35% live in poverty and 7% live in extreme poverty. Our craftsmen are part of these figures. Most came without prior knowledge in weaving, however they grew up in an environment where craftsmanship was always present, hence their innate talent. Tucurinca is an inclusive project that involves their talents creating opportunities for those who are stripped, giving meaning to their manual skills and taking them to another level.

Our chairs are a true recognition of the ingenuity of the people. We work with innate talent; We are weavers who were merchants, blacksmiths who were bricklayers and administrators who are now designers. Tucurinca is a tribute to our land, its colors and its people.
