What is The Wayuu Market

A Window Connecting the Wayuu to the World

Welcome to The Wayuu Market, the only platform that hosts Wayuu artisan shops directly from La Guajira, Colombia.

We work as a commercial bridge for rural indigenous communities to access the digital world market. All of our stores belong to artisans, local producers, and artisan union representatives. and we all work together to supply everyone from retail customers to wholesale merchants. Meet the artisans of the Wayuu Market.


  

The Platform allows for individuals to order bags, the high shipping prices for low quantities still offers a very competitive price, but significant discounts start happening at 10+ bags.

Get together with your friends and family and order many bags to enjoy wholesale prices as well!

We worked out a deal with the best carrier partner we could find in the region to get the items to you fast and safe. The more you ship the more you save per bag. We got a significant discount from the carrier and we pass that on to you! You can calculate this more accurately in the cart.

You can’t find what you like? Build your own unique piece, starting from the bottom of the bag.  Pick and choose from the assorted bottoms to match with the style of the strap you like. You can pick type, design, and length. If you start from a solid color bag, you would have to pick the colors of the strap from our color chart. On the other side, you can just buy the product raw!

So, we are the perfect bridge of communication between all the parties involved. And since we work so close to the artisans, we get to be there to guide them and accompany them so they have quality control processes and product development.


We can help you collaborate with the artisans to make a collection just for you and your store. The Wayuu Artisans are versatile and creative. Most of them welcome collaborations with people that are willing to understand and respect their culture. Many high fashion brands around the world source products from the Wayuu to the world. Ethically sourced products that support a generation of indigenous artisans; the biggest native artisan community of the Americas!

We use advanced tech tools to help artisans and fill their commercial needs while we optimize processes to bring you the most competitive prices and a high-quality service that can optimize the exchange.
