Voz is the voice of the Mapuche craftswomen, who collaborate closely with international fashion designers in the Araucanía region in Chile, to connect to a wider audience, as well as to sustain a traditional way of life.

Flechada brings you Voz's luxury handmade pieces, including ponchos, scarves, shawls and clutches, all made from natural materials, and supported under fair trade. Mapuche is one of the largest indigenous groups in South America; many of the Mapuche survive off their crafting and they weave their culture into amazing modern fashions in celebration of a long standing tradition, providing for them both economic opportunities and creative outlets.
Voz is committed to creating beautiful and illuminating creations that connect people, and provide a benefit to rural communities. In addition, only local and renewable materials, such as sheep’s wool, alpaca and llama are used. Each color is stained through ecological methods with plants, berries and mud, and each piece is made through processes that pose a minimum impact on the environment. Woven on handlooms, each piece is unique to its creator, a story of Mapuche history told, a symbol of the natural world.
Flechada shows the world the amazing things Latin America can do.
