Wakami Helps Disconnected Communities Find Urban Markets

Developed by Kiej de los Bosques, the Wakami brand is part of a social enterprise that markets products from rural communities in Guatemala. Wakumi products are the result of a collaboration between designers and artisan groups who wish to share the Guatemalan experience with the rest of the world.

From bracelets to woven dolls, the products are created by Guatemalan women who come from rural communities and whose passion for their ancestral heritage is expressed through their artwork. What were once impoverished areas are now prosperous communities due to the equal distribution of profits towards those who make the commodities. Wakumi encourages people to become leaders of change within their community.
