Can an artisan be an artist?
We are very proud to say that ALL our products are made by WOMEN!
The AMAYA Jewellery Collection, the Original Wayuu bags and The Italian Scarves have the touch of every single woman who put out her love and heart on every handmade piece.
The Wayuu Women
“To be a woman is to know how to weave” is the Wayúu saying.
For Galeria Amaya is very important supporting initiatives that create economic empowerment for women. Wayuu Women and their crochet technique is a powerful source of empowerment – most women in traditional communities already carry exceptional craft skills, shared by mothers, aunts and grandmothers in informal settings. Through their traditional woven motifs, they share their cosmological view of the universe and their traditions are passed down from generation to generation.
