As you have probably seen in the last couple of days we have launched our new collection. We have spent several days within our small team brainstorming on how to call it.
We have finally opted in for the simplest and we believe the most impactful solution. We decided to call it just ... GUAJIRA. Why? The recent collection comes strictly from the sacred land of Wayuu people placed on the caribbean coast of Colombia - numerous Indigenous Women from various communities spent hours on hand crochetting and hand weaving these one of a kind mochilas in differents shapes, patterns, colors and sizes depending on their mood and observation of their surroundings.
Each bag has the name of small community located precisely in the Guajira region of Colombia. The original names in their majority come from Indigenous mothertongue called Wayuunaiki.
We manage socialy responsible company and one of our goals is to EMPOWER WOMEN. We are proud and happy that thanks to our continuous efforts and talent of Wayuu Women their various families are able to live with dignity. We provide them the basics - pottable water, which seems unbelievable for us, but truly is a luxury in some areas of this region, food and school supplies.
Thank you for buying #luloplanet products. You have direct influence in somebody’s life. Feels great isn’t it?
Having in mind that Wayuu tribe lives within matriarchal society we also wanted to use this opportunity to wish you Happy Women’s Day, no matter in which part of the world you currently live.
