Sandra and her sisters weave colourful accessories incorporating symbols and patterns inspired by nature and representing the mythical spider who taught the Wayuu to weave. Their daily activities are run around the traditional family business, using skills passed on by generations.
Sandra is also a very active leader in the Ishipaa community, leading projects such as a veggie garden and bringing drinking water to her remote village, Riohacha in La Guajira, the largest dry area in Colombia.
We believe work gives a sense of achievement and empowers communities. Your purchases support Sandra’s family to make a decent living while preserving indigenous ancestral techniques.
Products: crossbody bags, crochet bags, hand-loomed straps, clutches, macrame straps, messenger bags, backpacks.
