Wakami World products tell stories; stories of the Earth, stories of people and their journeys in the world.
Remember the power of connection with Wakami at Flechada.
Wakami is a brand developed by Kiej de los Bosques, a social enterprise that markets products from rural communities in Guatemala. Wakami products are the result of collaboration between their designer´s team and several artisan groups with the shared dream of connecting the world to the Guatemala experience. Wakami links people through products that enrich the lives of those who buy them and change the lives of those who produce them.
They started working with a single rural community 15 years ago, and now collaborate with over 40 groups. Thanks to many wonderful women from rural communities these appealing and fun bracelets, necklaces and dolls are infused with centuries of Guatemalan cultural heritage, and their production is bringing prosperity to previously extreme poverty-stricken communities.
Flechada shows the world the amazing things Latin America can do.
