The ”Spider Women” of Hilo Sagrado Foundation


bAs the legend of  Wayúu people in Colombia  says  women were created from a spider   therefore  it is in their hands  to ‘interweave’  whatever  they  need …

IMG_3523

1Literally  for  the indigenous Wayúu people, knowing how to weave is a symbol of creativity, intelligence and wisdom, a practice that is past on from one generation to the next, during puberty  when girls can only be around their female relatives who teach them all the duties and social behavior that  Wayúu women must possess.

This  tradition,  is  embraced by Hilo Sagrado Foundation creating a sustainble social business where women are enabled to produce hand made products based on their traditional practicies.

IMG_0404Hilo Sagrado Foundation supports  the marketing and selling of the products, providing an income for the women  and their families.

Furthermore, profits are fedback into the community and the school, where 200 children from different ethnic groups attend.

The designs are patterns of geometrical shapes  and  each  item is made by one woman; therefore each product is one of a kind,   arduous handcraft . i.e.  it takes between 20 to 30 days   for a bag.m10The  Hilo Sagrado collections,  includes   garments, scarfs, shoes, and accessories, along  with homeware decorative  items  such  as  pillowes, hammocks, fabricks  and   many more  products.
