Welcome to our jungle! Here everyone shines from within!
We are a Colombian lifestyle brand that ethically produces handmade bags and accessories in partnership with local artisans, indigenous communities and single moms across Latin America. Our pieces are inspired in our country’s wildlife.
Pájara Pinta is pronounced “pahara peenta.” The expression comes from a famous Spanish song, and the two words describe a colorful (female) bird.
Pájara Pinta was born in 2014. It was created by designers Isabella Domínguez and María Paula Vargas while they were still at design school, where they met.
Being aware of the importance nature had in their lives—and how much it called them to be true to themselves—they decided to create a brand that exalted nature’s power and reminded them where they belonged—to a country full of treasures hidden in unexplored wilderness.
“We want our products to offer a way to reconnect with the beauty of nature—and to encourage an attitude of valuing and preserving it,” say the brand’s creators.
We are a Brand that Cares
We believe strongly there is a treasure trove of wisdom and beauty in the handcraft techniques that local tribes and artisans have been using over the centuries. We constantly seek to work hand in hand with them in new, respectful ways that allow them to find new perspectives for their abilities.
We seek to empower local communities and small artisan workshops, and we are interested in preserving for future generations their time-honored artisanal traditions.
We are committed to making everyday decisions that are guided by durability, ethical practices, fair trade and next-to-zero waste.
