The production of cotton in Colombia dates back to the indigenous people (Colombian natives), who inhabited this area of South America prior to the arrival of the Europeans in the 16th century.
Cotton is still an important crop in Colombia today, providing work and economical growth for farmers throughout the country. Our handmade cotton fibre jewellery embraces the traditional vibrant colours found in the Colombian Andes.
Cotton begins its life as a soft fluffy ball (or boll) of fibre that grows around the seed of the cotton plant.
The cotton bolls are cleaned, deseeded and prepared to be spun into the fibre, ready to make the jewellery
The light weight of the cotton makes it particularly attractive for jewellery, especially for necklaces and pendant set, which are more easily wearable because they are not too heavy.
Cotton Fibre for Jewellery
The cotton also lends itself to being died with vibrant, bright colours. This versatility is demonstrated perfectly in the Mixy Fandino range of jewellery.
Cotton fibre is light, versatile and eco-friendly.
The technique of crafting by hand creates highly malleable pieces and each item has it's own style, characteristics. Individual and intriguing jewellery.
