The Sigi bag inherits the rich tradition of the indigenous Cotopaxi-Tungurahua and Chimborazo cultures. Woven from sisal fiber, they are the contemporary manifestation of the shigras that women traditionally wove to carry crops and seeds from field to settlement. Today, the principal use for shigras is as handbags – a role which they excel at, being a material exemplar of the synthesis of old and new. This bag is an embodiment of contemporary Latin America.
Jaguarundi promotes high quality Latin American handicrafts around the world, showcasing the work of a new generation of artisans and designers who meld traditional crafts with contemporary styles. With an excellent eye, unparalleled taste and a focus on social and environmental sustainability, Jaguarundi’s collections are a window into the multicultural world of today’s Latin America.
