Chile is a country of extremes, where desert, mountains, sea, ice and islands coexist; and this geographic diversity is reflected in a great diversity of native peoples. Through their figures, Artesania Tatitu wants to contribute to the identity and diffusion of Chilean culture, ranging from the north to the south, trying to capture the typical characteristics of each ethnic group or character. Their designs use at least 40% reused materials, rescuing the respect and love of their ancestors for the Earth. This is how TATITU embraces the Diaguita, Aymara, Rapa Nui, Tehuelche, Mapuche and Selknam cultures, as well as characters such as Chilotes and Huasos. The Mapuche people are the largest ethnic group in Chile and constitute approximately 10% (more than 1.000.000 people) of the Chilean population. Half of them live in the south of Chile from the river Bío Bío until the Chiloé Island. The other half is found in and around the capital, Santiago.
