WARIMBA represents a space for honest expression. Their ideals embody Latin American culture and strive for peace, justice, and human rights. They seek to empower the talent of local artisans, offering a variety of handmade hammocks with bright colors that reflect our unique and rebellious personality. It comes from the union of the words Wayúu and Guarimba. The Wayúu is a native community located in the Guajira peninsula in northern Colombia and northwest of Venezuela near the Caribbean Sea. “Guarimba” in Venezuelan slang means “safe place” and in the last decades the term has been used to signify protest against the dictatorial government.
WARIMBA's mission is to promote the work of people from indigenous communities, learn about their culture, and give them a voice in a world fully distracted by conventional media and the rush of everyday life.
