These hoops are handcrafted by the 'Warkhis', indigenous group from the 'Bajo Baudo' in Colombia. For them, the colors, are an expression of life, and tell stories about their identity.
The black color is gotten from a natural plant, they tint the fiver, then they bury it in the mud for several days. The black color represents the new moon, it is the moment when the bud can be cut to be grown. It represents too the shadows and the spirits.
