Our Philosophy

Pülasü wants to show everyone the work of the amazing talented artisans, pattern makers, and designers we work with through their unique pieces of handmade art. These aren't just fast fashion products, these are creations that take time and knowing of long-held traditions that are passed down from generation to generation. They are hand-made with the two main focuses of preserving and continuing Wayuu, Inga, Misak and Embera culture and improving their communities.

These special pieces are not just an accessory to a newly-imagined look. It is a promise to the indigenous communities that their loved craft is both heard, seen, and understood.


In today's fast-paced world, large-scale manufacturing combined with its unsustainability have become widespread

   

 

For many indigenous artisans, especially women, in Colombia, it is nearly impossible to gain a livable wage and compete at an economic level with these big corporations. Their last resort is to leave their hometowns and relocate to nearby cities. Because of this , the traditional knowledge of beading and weaving is becoming in danger of not being passed down to future generations.

 

This is why we directly support and buy from artisans!

 

There is NO middle man to barge in and take a portion of their $$. And negotiating prices? We've never heard of that. Whatever our artisans ask for, we rightfully pay them.


Why You'll Love Pülasü

Each curated piece is 100% handcrafted by a highly skilled Wayuu, Misak, Inga, or Embera artisan.

Buying handmade ensures that the traditional knowledge and cultural identity of beading and weaving are kept alive and passed down for generations to come.

You will never have the same creation as anyone else.

EVER!

Earning a Fair Wage

 

   

Many communities have been affected by COVID-19 and the restrictions put on local markets and events -- 2 important ways artisans make an income. Buying directly from them ensures that they are given work and are safe at the comfort of their home!

Earning a fair wage allows families to be able to afford food and buy basic necessities while having the ability to save money for other personal needs. Overall, money is kept in the local economy and used to upgrade living standards , improve water quality, and provide educational resources for many children and adults. In return, communities are able to thrive and grow more.

Our goal at Pülasü is to build even an even greater momentum for these Indigenous communities by supporting them and hyping up their amazing culture, creative spirits, and resilient history!
