We consider it a privilege to provide an avenue for folks in the United States to purchase these extraordinary Wayuu textiles. Since we began this process, we have met many talented and inspiring artists and created deep connections. It is also is satisfying to know that US dollars go a long way for weavers and their families. In the short time that they have been selling hammocks and bags to US buyers at the prices they decided were fair, some artisans have improved their living conditions and children's futures. Moving from a corrugated tin house with dirt floor to a roomy cinder block house and paying for college tuition for children are directly attributed to Artisanías Walapüin.
