Super durable from Andean regions of Colombia.

A truly important mission of Jetset Times SHOP is to promote smaller brands from around the world while giving back to causes that we’re passionate about.

A few weeks ago, we introduced you to our partnership with Lolo and Chatona, a company producing beautiful ponchos and accessories from Colombia – one of the hottest destinations this year. Since then, we’ve added 8 handbags made out of 100% fique (a natural fiber that grows in the Andean regions of Colombia) that is super durable and eco-friendly.

#JetsetForGood: For every tote you purchase, a portion of the proceeds fund Fundación Escuela Taller, a non-profit organization that aims to preserve Colombia’s national heritage by teaching local communities traditional crafts, art forms and artisan methods.

I’m about to order some of these myself for a few friends who have all visited Colombia in the last year. These make a lovely souvenir for such a special country!
