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.
