Tejedoras de Vida was an initiative of the Ministry of Culture of Colombia to support small artisans from the rural territories. The women of Mingueo, Guajira live in a small community in the most northern region of Colombia. They have collaborated together to form an arts and crafts entrepreneurship that uses recycled plastic material to create different accessories such as wallets and purses. The project proposes to work with the Weaver Women in the creation of a brand and a series of products that can help them generate a sustainable economy for their community.
*Project developed with the Escuela Taller de Bogota and the Ministry of Culture of Colombia.
