OUR INSPIRATION

TATACOA

The Tatacoa Desert is a Tropical Dry Forest located in the department of Huila. It is characterized by its sandy landscapes of ocher, brown and gray colors, and for being a place full of history that is told through the different layers of its land and the fossils found in them.

GUARDIANS OF THE EARTH

The few rains and strong heat waves have caused the drought of the vegetation that does not adapt, leaving the land unprotected from erosion and discovering its underground treasures. Similarly, it is an ecosystem whose importance was only recognized approximately 10 years ago, so deforestation has been another cause of the loss of the substrate.

MATERIALS

For this collection we use recycled 950 Sterling Silver from X-rays along with bronze with patinas. The latter to express how each layer was related to different substances that led it to turn different colors over time.

La Tatacoa connects us with its past, its lands tell us about its origins and are witnesses to the passage of time. Their soils keep, layer after layer, the evidence of the waters that once ran over them, the minerals and substrates that enriched them and, above all, of the various organisms that have inhabited these lands though time.

CONTRIBUTES TO THE CONSERVATION OF THE TROPICAL DRY FOREST

With the purchase of any jewel from the TATACOA collection, you help us finance different environmental education activities  for boys and girls in various municipalities of Huila.

For this purpose, we partnered with the
Pajareritos Foundation, who instill in children a love for the nature that surrounds them and the voice to make them the guardians of the future of the Tropical Dry Forest and all the species that inhabit it.
