cultural IMPACT

The tradition of weaving from the Zenú people, in the departments of Sucre and Córdoba in Colombia, is part of the cultural legacy that has been passed down from generation to generation since pre-Hispanic times, reflecting their worldview and relationship with the territory through craftsmanship.

The declaration of the weaving with caña flecha (arrow cane) as a heritage of Colombians is a recognition of the Indigenous Zenú communities, their ancestral practices, and knowledge.

Within the Zenú Community, the concept of ‘weaving’ constitutes the heart or center of what defines them as a distinct collective entity (cosmogony and worldview), and it is present in all aspects of their social and cultural life.
