We are a specialized fashion brand that focuses on the intricate creations of the Wayuu indigenous community in the Guajira Coastal Region of Colombia. The Wayuu are known for creating one-of-a-kind, meaningful and colorful "mochila" bags, also known as "bucket bags" because of their shape. Our focus is to offer high quality, authentic and unique products that while traditional, are also highly fashionable.
At Wayiro we strive to be a sustainable business that is also profitable for all parts involved. Our products are obtained in accordance with fair trade principles, which promote the social and human development of artisan communities.
As two young Colombians, we are constantly on the lookout for opportunities to both give back and promote our valuable culture abroad. Thus, Wayiro came to us as an idea of how we could combine our interest for fashion with social entrepreneurship.
