Soraya's Note: Our first ever Leopard Shopper hit the market earlier this year and it quickly became one of our best-selling items! Our new leopard shoppers have a colorful base color and our infamous leopard spots in a soft neutral tone. These shoppers are bold and eye-catching! Handmade by master Wayuu Artisans in Venezuela, our Olive Leopard Shopper has a tote silhouette that can easily be carried in-hand or tucked under your arm. We love the classic olive green for both the holiday and winter season. Find its charming mini size here.

Fair Trade And Sustainable Practices
By working closely with local craftsmen and women, Soraya provides a stable source of employment to over 40 Wayuu families, rejecting the fast fashion business model in favor of a more sustainable, environmentally responsible production process.SORAYA HENNESSY is committed to advancing the economic rights of indigenous women in Colombia and Venezuela. Through offering waged two times industry average for their art, Soraya empowers Wayuu women to become entrepreneurs themselves, as well as encouraging innovation and providing education and training to them and their families. Soraya also makes sure to meet with her artisans whenever she can, and knows the creator of each bag personally. She shuns faceless mass-production in favour of this fair-trade alternative approach, simultaneously supporting vulnerable Wayuu communities and raising awareness about sustainable practices. As all weaving is done by hand, in the home of the artisan without factories or machines, SORAYA HENNESSY champions responsible business practices that supports Wayuu people and the planet.
