Craft horsehair, called "crin" is from central Chile, and unique in the world. The horsehair is recycled and dyed with plant fibres to produce original and colourful products. This versatile material is woven and creatively combined with metals to produce beautiful and unique jewelry.

In the village of Rari, the tradition of horsehair processing has provided a livelihood for many craftswomen for over 200 years. Our source is a family that has been active in production of Crin products for 3 generations. Their mission is to help people make a living from their work so this tradition is not lost, making this project sustainable.
