Wichi women have used the Chaguar plant for centuries to produce numerous objects for domestic use.
The language of this community and the Chaguar plant make up a central part of their cultural identity.
Chaguar- like most other natural resources, such as animals and forest fruit- is a resource to which the Wichi have free access. The Wichi community has developed a complex relationship with nature. Their special economy of non-accumulation has been the backbone of sustainable and equitable use of these resources throughout centuries.

Wichi women have worked with Chaguar for centuries. The production of chaguar textiles is a common women's activity in their culture. Women travel into the forest in small groups to harvest the Chaguar, they separate the fibers, spin it, dye it and knit it. Using ancient techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation, they weave beautiful and natural bags and baskets.

Casapacha works with an association named SIWAN'I, a group of women from El Potrillo, Formosa, in the north of Argentina. This organization was created with the aim of improving their income and quality of life in an organized way. Promoting work as a way of empowerment and a dignified life

Our collection of Ponchos & Scarves was made in the north of Argentina, in a place knows as Puna. In Quechua (local indigenous language), the word ‘Puna’ means ‘high land’. The Puna is a desert, high in altitude and dominate by Andes peaks.

Our artisan partners there are a group of more than 120 women, who live in isolated communities through all the Puna area. They have been working together for years and have created an association. The artisans work with 100% llama and sheep wool from the local communities and use ancestral techniques to hand spin the wool and weave on loom the products.
