The Colombian people are faithful to their weaving tradition. Over the years, this ancestral knowledge has been present in rural areas where agricultural activities and armed conflicts replaced many of their handcrafted gestures. However, people have adapted the original techniques using non-traditional materials. Plastic cords and strings, such as zuncho and cabuya and other materials originally used in the banana plantations of the Caribbean region, which are now conceived as the main input for the creation of chairs. Tucurinca was born as the revival of these ancestral techniques.



We aim to rescue of the traditional Caribbean chair, reinventing the designs, recovering thetechniques, and showing innovation through the materials.
A whole range of furniture designed and inspired by the Colombian tropics. The perfect blend of traditional techniques and international standards.
