Soraya's Note: Our tote silhouette has become a staple in every woman’s closet and this summer season we redesigned our totes with a playful heart print and summer perfect pastel colorway. Hand-woven to perfection by mastered Wayuu Artisans in Venezuela, our “Love is in the Air” tote has three different heart shaped designs across the entire bag. It takes between 8-10 days to handweave every one of our brand-new totes. We think it works in the city as well as the beach. The spacious interior will hold your essentials, plus a book and sunglasses for your next summer vacation.
Kind To People and The Planet
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.
