The fabulous Wild Tortero Salvaje Centerpiece is a feat of craftsmanship that mixes the traditions of two of Colombia's indigenous artisanal communities. The black ceramic plate is made in La Chamba and it perfectly contrasts the lighter tones of the base, woven entirely by hand using the fiber of Paja Tetara (a kind of palm tree) in ocher and natural hues.

The base of the centerpiece is woven by artisans of the Eperara Siapidara community through a painstaking process, while the black ceramic hails from the department of Tolima. Decorate your dinner or coffee table, use it as a fruit or vegetable bowl, or simply as a stunning decorative piece to bring a touch of Colombia's art to your home.
