They hand weave the material from natural fibers on a hand loom and then make the bags and accessories. There are mainly three types of weaves and materials used for CordoBags. The Mochila inspired bags are made with very fine thread. The thread used is the same that is used for Colombia’s famous hammocks. Mochila is made through crochet work by the Wayuu women who have to work for around 20 days to finish them. Their design and craftsmanship is therefore quite exquisite. If soiled, the Lucy collection items can be machine washed and dried and they are as good as new. The final collection called the Caña Flecha collection. These bags are very special as they are made from a rare palm leaf that grows in Colombia near where the Zenu tribe lives. These trees grow naturally and are free from any kind of fertilizers. As such the natural fibers of the bags do not pollute the environment by giving out toxins when they are in use. If any dyes are used in these handbags to give it unique coloring, they are also made from natural colors. The natural colors are made from vegetables, fruits and plant essence.
Other than the handmade handbags, the CordoBags also have a set of natural accessories that are a class of their own. These accessories like necklaces, bracelets and earrings are crochet from natural seeds like coffee beans, tag nuts, lime seeds, melon seeds, coconut etc.
