Zuahaza means “my sister” in the Muisca language of the people who lived in the Cundiboyacense mountain region of Colombia. As a social enterprise, Zuahaza strives to embody collective sisterhood between women in Colombia.
Following an era of intense conflict, which continues to shape and affect Colombia today, Zuahaza seeks to participate in peacemaking efforts to reunite and heal our country. Zuahaza strives to connect women from across Colombia and to create unique products that reflect our diversity, history, and dreams as statements of the unity and peace to come from Colombia. This is what sisterhood means to us.
