These handwoven dishmats are made in Inírida, Guainía, by indigenous women from the Curripaco, Cubeo and Puinare communities. The dishmats are handcrafted with the fiber obtained from the palms of Chiquichiqui or Maramá(Leopoldinia piassaba). The indigenous artisans use the techniques of rolling and fabric spiraling, a skill passed on from generation to generation. Although basketry was originally a male activity, the demand has motivated more female participation.
