The “Hilo Sagrado” Foundation works with the Wayuú Guajira communities (Colombia) since 2013, through education, economic female artisans empowerment and sustainable development. The objective is to look for communities being able to become self-sustainable through the granting of the necessary tools allowing them to lead their own craft work and get out of the extreme poverty they bear.
Though design, training and innovation, they work with 150 female artisans in order to develop high quality products reflecting their culture, set out to enter the global market. “Hilo Sagrado” respects the ancestral Latin America techniques and also innovates materials, design and production models. The novelty of this model with a social impact is based on 3 pillars already mentioned above.
