ABOUT TRIBE

Welcome to Tribe Handmade Accessories, where we celebrate the beauty of cultural heritage through our exquisite collection of handcrafted accessories. Our journey began in Sarasota, where Johana and Melissa, co-founders of Tribe, were inspired by their love for art, culture, and sustainable fashion.

At Tribe, we believe in the power of accessories to tell a story and create a connection between people and diverse cultures. Each piece in our collection is meticulously handcrafted by skilled artisans from different indigenous tribes around the world, bringing together their rich traditions and craftsmanship.

From the captivating Palma Paradise Collection, showcasing the mastery of Iraca Palm weaving by artisans in Usiacuri, Colombia, to the enchanting Sierra Elegance Collection, featuring the intricate patterns and sheep wool weaving techniques of the Arhuaco tribe in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, our accessories are a testament to the cultural heritage and artistry passed down through generations.
