Wayuu Artisans Are a Gift to The World
The Wayuu are one of the largest artisan communities in the world, dedicated to one line of products, manufacturing millions of items a year. No sweatshops! Just thousands of women weaving the patterns they dream. Their ancestors tell stories about the spider Wale Keru, who taught the women of the tribe how to make household items and tools. The vibrant colors and intricate patterns contrast beautifully against the yellows and oranges of the La Guajira desert.
Weaving and crocheting have the utmost cultural relevance for the people of the tribe. The rites of passage for women include becoming a master weaver and weave your mochila.
