Wakami was established with the sole mission to create income-generating opportunities that transform the lives of people in rural villages of Guatemala.
In order to create sustainable change, we created a business model that partners with artisans in rural areas to produce Wakami products. We focus on fashion designs that incorporate many of the weaving skills found in their culture.
Our inclusive system allows Artisan entrepreneurs the ability to start their own business and become a production partner with the Wakami brand.
Our non-profit partner Communities of the Earth (COTE), makes this possible, by mentoring, educating and training each business owner how to open and manage their own business.
