Tireless traveler and dreamer, Carolina Vélez is the creator of Oropendola. Her love for crafts, the work behind handmade pieces and the value she finds in hidden details, have made Carolina create a brand that rescues local techniques through amazonian pieces of great character and strength, intensifying ancestral identity to the world.
The brand produces everything with artisan communities, and collaborators who share her vision in saving and highlighting their techniques through this project. In honor of the team- Willy, leader of the group, his family, and the rest of the community have been uniting through time, learning different techniques, and finding in macramé a new expression. Oropendola wishes to involve communities and different techniques representing the heritage of Colombia.
