  • No Black Friday at @mama.tierra our organization does not work under the fast consumerism premise. But we work hand in hand with indigenous women in extreme poverty. In order that people living in extreme poverty can be productive, there is much social work which needs to be made in order that this same people can rise through their work and not become even poorer. This is especially the case with products made by wayuu people.  Fair payment for women's handicrafts gives them financial independence. However is the massive underpayment of Wayuu women a big problem. 
The Wayuu live in extreme poverty, they often do not speak Spanish and are therefore in a disadvantaged negotiating position. Working with Mama Tierra is of much benefit to them, as they are treated with respect and fairly. According to the study by Douglas Fernandes DaSilva, Wayuu Indigenous people sell big bags for 30 000 COP (10 CHF) (Fernandes DaSilva 2018, 106). However, the artisans pay about 15 000 COP (5 CHF) for transport to the nearest town (Riohacha, Uribia or Manaure), where they sell the bag to street vendors, who then at least double their resale price. In addition, the artisan also pays for material costs of 17 500 COP (5.8 CHF). Taking into account the expenses from material and transport costs, the artisan only gets to earn around 6 000 to 10 000 COP per bag sold (2 CHF-3.3 CHF). Cheap crafts put in danger the livelihood and material culture of an entire ethic group.  #blackfriday #whitefriday  #mamatierra #ngo #❤️ #ethicalfashion #changemaker #consciousconsumer  #empoweringwomen #imadeyourclothes #beatpoverty  #sustainableliving #fairfashion #slowfashion #fightingpoverty #handmade #sustainablefashion #zürich #boho #bohostyle #fashrev #fashionrevolution #baden #fashionsustain #challengefashion #ethicalliving #neonyt #empowerment #takebackblackfriday

  • At Mama Tierra we also are concerned with the environmental issues of indigenous land. Because of the lack of governmental services in La Guajira, garbage is not collected but ends up in the land and sea. This pollutes the environment and kills wild life. The increased tourism in the area has worsen the garbage problem. If you are traveling to la guajira take your waste back to bogota please.  #mamatierra #ngo #❤️ #ethicalfashion #changemaker #consciousconsumer  #empoweringwomen #imadeyourclothes #beatpoverty  #sustainableliving #fairfashion #slowfashion #fightingpoverty #handmade #sustainablefashion #zürich #boho #bohostyle #fashrev #fashionrevolution #baden #fashionsustain #challengefashion #ethicalliving #neonyt #empowerment #resortwear  #fashionanthropology #blickfang #takebackblackfriday

  • Just as the Wayuu, we take inspiration from the colors and the landscape of 
Alta Guajira and from the countries where the Wayuu spend their time going 
from one place to the other, that is, Venezuela and Colombia. The landscapes, 
plants, flowers, animals and traditional patterns, they all are deeply taken into account in order to create new designs. During our trip to La Guajira in 2018, Dr. Lourdes Grollimund took pictures of the landscape that later she transformed into crochet patterns for the bags. The Wayuu have been wonderful creators of intricate 
geometries, very mathematical, which has inspired me to also create new geometric patterns. We particularly like pop art and some of the latest designs have drawn inspiration from that art form. Lourdes being a trained scientist,  she pays close attention to details, for example, when making the patterns for the hydrangeas and dahlias, we have made sure they almost look 3D, by choosing the right colors in the correct positions. Lourdes background as a geophysicist also inspired her to create a design that looks like a fault representation in the subsurface. Many people have been drawn to this design. Our connection with this planet cannot be denied. The creative process is one that we have enjoyed greatly and are grateful to Mama Tierra for giving us the opportunity to explore our passion.  #mamatierra #ngo #❤️ #ethicalfashion #changemaker #consciousconsumer  #empoweringwomen #imadeyourclothes #beatpoverty #fairfashion #slowfashion #fightingpoverty #handmade #sustainablefashion #zürich #boho #bohostyle #fashrev #fashionrevolution #baden #fashionsustain #challengefashion #ethicalliving #neonyt #empowerment #resortwear  #fashionanthropology
