Poetic Secrets Bag in Bronze
This bag is inspired by the traditional saddlebags of the Antioquia region in Colombia. Originally used by coffee farmers during their arduous journeys on mules, the carriel holds a rich legacy steeped in the coffee culture of Western Colombia. Johanna Ortiz's interpretation of this traditional bag results in a unique piece that carries the magic, secrets, and spells of its heritage. To bring this mini carriel to life, the design team embarked on a journey to Jericó, Antioquia, a town renowned for its carriel production. In collaboration with Santiago Agudelo, a third-generation artisan from the Agudelo family, the team learned about the centuries-old sewing and construction traditions behind the authentic carriel. Santiago generously shared his knowledge, craft, and the magical lore associated with the bag.
