Inspired by the Chumbe Inga, a garment with traditional symbols, Mae Engelgeer created the chumbe collection. For the hand-woven cushions and layers, the designer combines cotton and natural fibres with fine metallic yarns and joins them to form ribbed structures. In a graphic composition these form a unique pattern. Following a tradition deeply rooted in the Sibundoy region, the female artesanos weave the history of the country, experience and knowledge into the Chumbe Inga using textile symbols. As individual as these are, each object in the series is also unique, testifying to a very individual design language. The cushions are available in two colour variations and have different patterns on both sides. The collection includes two different sizes and a cylindrical shape. The layers also have different patterns on the front and back and can be combined with the cushions in different colours.
The products of the ames collection are mostly made from natural materials and produced in small, traditional manufactories. As each object is unique, there may be slight variations in size and colour.
