This week we speak to creator and director of the Fundacion Hilo Sagrado (http://www.hilosagrado.org/) Sabrina Priolo. Working with members of the fascinating Wayuu community in Colombia's northeastern Guajira region, Prioli is working towards rescuing vital elements of the Wayuu culture including the traditional weaving and storytelling practices. Prioli's charity now exports these fashionable products all over the world so tune in and find out about the Wayuu culture and its desert environs and how you can get your hands on some quality, locally sourced hammocks and mochilas. Priolo has been working to empower Wayuu women and in this revealing interview she lets us know how she became accepted within the community.
