Black Poetic Secrets Mini Shoulder Bag
The carriel is a modified saddlebag from the Antioquia region of Colombia, traditionally carried by coffee farmers during their long journeys traveling on mules. The bag holds a rich legacy of tradition emblematic of the coffee culture of Western Colombia. The design team traveled to Jericó, Antioquia, a small town renowned for carriel production. Following centuries of sewing and construction traditions, the artisans in Jericó continue to produce the authentic carriel. In a small workshop, Santiago Agudelo, the third generation of the Agudelo family, welcomed the JO design team. He shared his knowledge, craft, and art in producing the authentic carriel and the magical lore behind the bag. The collaboration between Santiago Agudelo’s workshop and the JO design team resulted in the creation of the JO carriel. With the utmost respect to the artisanal legacy, but in keeping with the JO ethos, the team carefully sourced and introduced raw materials.
