In Wakami we believe that individual dreams are strong and that collective dreams are unstoppable!!!

We started our journey in the villages of Guatemala . . .

in remote places, where there were big dreams and scarce opportunities.

People in the villages said: 

If you can sell what we produce,

The rest we can do.

What we need is a source of income!

That is why at Wakami we decided to create beautiful products,

products that would be messengers of those dreams and hopes . . .

The people in the villages were right . . .

these products are changing their lives. . .

but what we did not expect, was that they would change the lives of all of us

wearing their products . . . people all over the World!

We realized that by partnering and working together

we can transform anything we dream of . . .

We realized that if each one of us brings our talents

we can accomplish anything we set our minds to . . .

We realize that inspite of the challenges of the world,

we have hope . . .

the hope that comes when people hold hands . . .

when people dream together . . .

when people travel this journey of life together . . .

when people dare to dream big . . . with others!!!

Welcome to Wakami World . . .

and join this collective dream . . .

one where PROSPERITY, PURPOSE & HOPE are there for everyone!!!
