About Us

the way u founder Lillian Garcia dedicates her colorful mochila and clutch brand to the traditional Colombian craft of the Wayuu tribe, where each bag is carefully handmade through more than 10 hours of time-honored work. Lillian works with the women of the Wayuu on a first-name basis, donating a 10 percent of profits back to the Wayuu communities, in addition to the women's pay for their initial work on the bags. Lillian's brand assists the Wayuu's community development and the personal and professional growth of the women, as the women of the Wayuu use the funds for their children's schooling, medical bills, food and basic living expenses.
