OVERVIEW

This medium-sized brim hat has a crown with a prominent pattern formed by triangles and squares. Its brim is circled by alternating lines finished with a thick edged one that adds texture. Hand-painted in water resistant black paint, be sure to add a touch of color and adorn it with a fuchsia-green woven tassel coming straight from the Moroccan Atlas.

Each hat is individually crafted by hand in Colombia by artisans from the Wayuu indigenous community.
Due to its hand craftsmanship, hats can vary slightly in size and have some imperfections, which is part of its uniqueness.
Washein says
"Subtle yet striking is the symbolic pattern in the crown. A pattern found often in the work of Washein's native wayuu artisans. Bring a vintage appeal to your look while protecting from the sun. And who knows about strong sun better than the Guajira tribes? With this hat rest assured you will find out too."

Shop Owner: Claudia Patricia Henriquez Iguaran

On Urbankissed since: 2019

Washein's aim is to introduce people around the world with the most beautiful crafts from the native Wayúu tribe of Colombia. Its product are straw hats and bags and are carefully handwoven by Wayúu artisans in Colombia.

Washein was founded by Claudia Iguarán. Before Claudia launched Washein, she took over the direction of the Nazareth Hospital in 2012. It is from them that she saw the need for Indigenous patients with Tuberculosis after having completed phase one of the treatment, to feel productive to support their families. This is why in 2017, Claudia decided to start Washein. She started Washein with the aim of supporting them in the commercialization of their handicraft products, she established a costing study with them so they were able to obtain a fair profit.

The artisanal pieces are 100% handmade by Wayuu artisans that Claudia has personally known since her childhood. Every single hat and bag is especial, made and painted by hand. The artisans are involved in all the process, from dying the straw filaments, to carefully weaving the products and finally trimming and cleaning them. The pompons that decorate them are weaved by a group of Wayúu women from a different community, that live in Riohacha.
