A jigra is the classic netted mochila of the Koreguaje indigenous community living in Colombia’s Amazon rainforest. These bags are frequently used for fishing and collecting of foods like yucca and plantain. Each jigra is made from cumare - a locally harvested and sustainable palm fiber, and takes approximately 2-4 days to weave while using a paddle as a guide.
