Art and the finest craftsmanship combined under one hat

But Colombianas handcrafted hats are not only beautiful pieces of art to wear on your head, by buying one, but you are also creating an impact in Colombia by supporting the most talented artisans and artists of mostly rural societies in a country, that is still struggling to recover from over 50 years of civil war.
“Wherever you turn to look in Colombia, life is colorful and full of culture and art. When you’re walking down the paved streets of Cartagena with its pastel-colored buildings to the blooming pink Bougainvillea trees, you are immediately drawn into the beauty and vibrancy of the city. You can still see that the country and its people have been through a lot in the past but you can feel the gratitude and joy for life everywhere”, says Alexandra Kraft, Founder of the Colombianas brand.
The birth of unique fashion items of art
In a corner street café in Cartagena, while sipping on an aromatic cup of Colombian brewed coffee, overlooking the vibrant way of life all around, the Colombianas brand was envisioned. There could be no better choice than Colombia as the originating country for Colombianas, the people here are gifted with indigenous artistic talents that have been passed on from generation to generation. The colorful designs are a true reflection of the Colombian culture, and their zest for life is evident in the pieces they create.
“It is fascinating how deeply artistic talents are rooted in Colombia’s history and families. We love art and we love Colombia. Our mission is to support this country’s artistic talents and show the whole world the richness and beauty of Colombia”, Kraft continues.
