Okama means the path that runs around the neck and its purpose is to protect the woman's heart, empower her, and to highlight her beauty. The waves of the Okamas are full of ancestral Embera Chami wisdom and crafted from generational weaving techniques. Every Okama tells a story, the conscious complexity of colorful patterns of nature. Every piece can take up to 20+ days to complete. Designs are 100 % exclusive and are a hybrid of culture and history. We guarantee no two necklaces will ever be the same!
