From the remote La Guajira Desert, Sandra from the Ishipaa community and her family weave these colourful accessories putting love and time to make this one of a kind piece!
La Guajira is the largest dry area in Colombia. They lack of rain makes it really difficult to find the most basic need, water! They rely on a wind mill and a few basic wells. Bottled water is expensive and difficult to access from the village.
Your purchases support Sandra’s family business to make a decent living while preserving indigenous ancestral techniques.
We believe work gives a sense of achievement and empowers communities. Work can break the poverty cycle!
