Once upon a time, a spider known as Walekerü taught a little girl her most precious skill : the art of weaving.
The day that little girl became a woman,
the spider left, leaving her and her people
a gifted treasure : the technique of Wayúu.
Colombia is host to 65 unique tribes, each one having their own personal beliefs, language, craftsmanship, and respect for nature.
Our aim is to provide a fair and respectful means of revenue for the craft makers while collaborating on specialized designs, sizes and colors made for an international audience.
We treat our craft makers with the same respect as our customers.
