Soraya's Note:  SORAYA HENNESSY is leading a movement of local Wayuu designers who shun the model of mass-production that is so common in today’s fashion world. Instead, we favor slow and artisanal practices, that offer a steady job to 60 different families in Venezuela and Colombia. Our Leopard bags are one of the most intricate designs we have done to date, taking between 12 to 14 days to weave. Designed in bold, animal print, and black Leopard, the Shopper is a statement piece that could be worn with jeans, a white dress, a beach cover-up and anything else in between.

Kind To People and The Planet 

Female Empowerment

Global Appeal 

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.
