QUE ONDA VOS
Que Onda Vos is the collaboration between Belgian designer Hanne De Wyngaert and Y’abel Handicrafts, an organisation that offers support to Mayan women in the Guatemalan countryside by making weaving, a traditional part of their daily lives, a solid source of income.
The label combines the Mayan tradition and Western culture in the form of design and fair trade. All their products are 100% handmade by the Mayan weavers in Guatemala. The design of the products is a result of the dialogue, co-operation and interaction between the two cultures.
The project’s goal is to develop an awareness about conscious consumption and to create jobs in indigenous communities ensuring fair wages.
QUE ONDA VOS is about respect. Respect for human and nature.
