Our Story

I come from a farmer father and a housewife mother who used her hands to make crafts and sell them, with them during my childhood in La Guajira Colombia, I grew up surrounded by indigenous people, but especially with the indigenous women. My father was always teaching and reminding me the difficulties and efforts that these women made daily to bring bread to their homes, and that they still always showed humility and joy. Despite their daily efforts, I saw the poverty in which they lived, and that's how I decided that when I grew up I would support their economy and show the world how beautiful their culture and work is. 
Yancy Handmade is a company that not only supports one group of indigenous people, but all indigenous and artisans in my country Colombia and encourages people to help all indigenous and artisans around the world.
