The Story Behind

JUNGLE FOLK AT WORK - part 4

The sewing process of our clothing takes place in different small workshops in Medellin. The women who sew all come from a economically vulnerable background. They often live in very small apartments where the living room is also workshop and even bedroom. Jungle Folk works closely together with the municipality of Medellin who has great social programs. One of these programs, called "CEDEZO" gives micro-credits to these women in order to make the purchase of a sewing machine possible, they also empower these women with workshops about quality questions, worth ethics, prices etc. Jungle Folk also has given some workshops in the frame of this program.

our beautiful blazers hanging in Estela's living room. We only bring them small quantities at once in order not to occupy their whole living space

JUNGLE FOLK AT WORK - part 3

get an insight into Oscar Torro's hand loom workshop in Medellin. He and his wife work the hand loom since ever and met each other in a big hand loom workshop. They perfected their skills extremely so they could buy their own looms..sadly this art is being substituted more and more by industrial machines so there is a lack of work. We were happy to develop beautiful pillowcases and blankets with them! muchas gracias ♡
