About Us

We create things that get attention and are meaningful.



The name HMI comes from the abbreviation of Hand Made Inpirations owned by B.V.B. B.V. Hand made Inpirations means that these communities are inspired by nature itself to create colors that symbolize the essential elements for life such as the sun, water, fauna and flora. HMI  is an ethnic fashion brand based in the Netherlands, under the firme B.V.B. B.V.

It aims to encourage artisans from different regions of Colombia and some other South American countries so that their handmade creations are valued and recognized before the world as garments originals of great beauty and quality. All HMI items are carefully crafted by indigenous communities or artisanal farmers, using high quality sustainable materials. Although many communities lack some basic needs as for example water this does not prevent them from continuing to inspire themselves based on their dreams, ideals and ancestral legends. The main objective of our brand reflects our dedication to preserve indigenous culture, nature and create decent work opportunities through the promotion of this traditional art form.


The mission of HMI is to create a sustainable source for high-quality handcrafted products from Latin America to reach the global fashion market. We work hard to support the creativity, ingenuity and inspiration of the artisan workers while we try to preserve the ancestral indigenous culture and creative traditions.

HMI honors the culture of Latin American artisans, in order to be recognized as an important part in the development and economic and cultural social of Latin America in general. The promotion of these creative companies and local artisans empowers families and communities for a better quality of life and is an important part of the development of a country.
