Our Buyiri collection is inspired by the Taino symbol for bats. Bats are central to the Taino creation story. To Tainos caves held life, magic and death. It is no surprise that bats became integral to how our ancestors explained the origins of human life.
Legend claims that four bats got caught in the sunrise after a night of exploration. The sun transformed one into stone, another into a tree, the third became a bird and the fourth became man.
