We took the trip to the small town of Cuestecitas in search of the Wayuu women artisans.
Its an hour journey in a collectivo to the town from Riohacha, where we visit the market. We are surrounded by bags at every turn but most lack the quality we are looking for. But speaking to the market owners and seeing the prices they are selling at, the women can’t be getting a fair wage.
There are many women still arriving trying to sell to the stall owners. We start speaking to Adriana who has brought with her three bags that have taken three weeks each to make.
She talks to us about the difficulty she has selling to the market at a good price that here family can barely survive on this amount.
We arrange a fair price with Adriana for the beautiful bags and pay for her fair home. She again is someone that has no access to the internet or postal service but she has taught us about the struggles the women have with mass commercialisation.
