We promote their valuable work
We provide them continuos work at fair prices
We donate part of the proceeds from the sale of Luxchilas products to benefiting them, feeding the children, providing school supplies and recently buying solar panels
In the near future we will support them integrally, especially in areas like education and health.
We want to give back to society. The Wayuu community still live under precarious conditions. That is why we want to help improve their lives but always respecting their culture, beliefs and ancestral traditions.

Not only are they inspired by nature and reproduce their environment through designs with geometrical and colorful patterns, but also weave as a symbol of wisdom, intelligence and creativity.
For centuries, their women have used ancestral techniques to create the traditional hand woven Mochila.
We want to contribute to preserve the vibrant and exciting culture of the Wayuu Indigenous community that live in the Guajira Peninsula, in the north region of Colombia.
