Wayúu Taya

The Wayúu Taya Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 2002 by Venezuelan model Patricia Velasquez. Wayúu Taya (meaning "I am indigenous") assists the Wayúu, an indigenous group of over 450,000 people, located in the Guajira Peninsula of northern Colombia and Venezuela. Each one-of-a-kind bag by Wayúu Taya is hand-woven by the artisans of this region, and proceeds from the sale of each bag help improve the lives of those in the community.  Find Wayúu Taya bags at luxury retailers such as Holt Renfrew and Shopbop, or visit the Foundation's gift shop online.
