Wayuu Indigenous live in the furthest North of Colombia, the Peninsula of La Guajira. More than three quarters is desert and arid land where salt and coal are the main resources. Hard conditions to cultivate any crops or cattle or to have the day by day necesary water supply.
Away from central goverment the indigenous Wayuu struggle in their poverty but they have one resource that helps them to provide for their families. The beauty of their hand woven handicrafts give them the hope to keep living in the lands where they belong to and to teach their youth why Wayuu people are so resilient, brave and overall incredibly creative and skilled.
Amongst their work are the renowned Mochilas in plain colours or geometrical patterns, chinchorros (finest handcrocheted hammocks with fringes and designs), belts and accessories.
By purchasing one Wayuu handicraft you will directly contribute to the preservation of their cultural heritage that they want to keep and the needed income for their families plus a unique piece of art.
