Wayu is looking to showcase in Australia the art, culture and talent of Colombian artisans focusing on handmade and environmentally friendly accessories.
Wayu is an inspiration from - Wayuu, the largest Native American ethnic group in Colombia and Venezuela on the Caribbean coast that represents approximately 20% of all Indigenous tribes in Colombia.
One of the most significant parts of the Wayuu culture is the art of weaving that it is passed through generations. They express their way of leaving, the nature that surrounds them, their wisdom and creativity through it.
Just like this tribe, they are many other indigenous groups and people, in general in Colombia that have dedicated their lives to create art.
We work directly with the artisans so with every purchase you made you are truly helping a family in Colombia.
