We create artisanal products with the intention of showing the history that comes attached to them. With all of our pieces we represent this beliefs by referencing ancient deities and flows of energy through creative manual techniques that pass from one generation to the next hoping to preserve their histories and beliefs.
Our first collection, CULTURAL, we want to show how to go beyond what they already have and give them a little of the elegance, class and strength that characterizes Colombian women. Everyone who wears our bathing suits is wearing a unique piece that makes them authentic, reflecting a history of strength and connection to the earth and the EMBERA CHAMI community.
We want these empowered women to influence everyone around them and begin to knit a story with eLina Swimwear.
