We are engaged with improving the life conditions of our communities. Hence, Yonna works directly with the Wayúu communities of Colombia through partnerships with the families.
An important part of the value each customer pays for each Wayúu Handbag is given directly to these communities and another part is set apart to support their local projects starting with schools. Buying one of our handbags means helping these women to provide and empower their families!
WHAT DOES YONNA MEAN?
Yonna is the traditional dance of the Wayúu tribe, which symbolizes 3 main principles:
1) Social equality
2) Collective solidarity
3) Improving the relationship between human kind and the Cosmos
They are represented in the handcraft process of the Wayúu handbags and underly the intention of our enterprise.
