Kiej de los Bosques S.A. is a socially conscious enterprise that designs, develops and sells handmade fashion accessories. Its mission is to generate income for rural artisans that, despite having great knowledge and potential, are disconnected from markets. Kiej believes in the power of dreams as the generator of inspiration and the market forces as the source of sustained prosperity. It dreams of a world where diversity is celebrated, rights and responsibilities are treasured, and prosperity and security are attainable for all.

To sell its products, Kiej has created a value chain that goes from rural enterprises in Guatemala to Exclusive Importers in different regions of the world. Kiej has the role of designing, developing and selling products, while its partner organization Communities of the Earth plays the role of coaching and training the rural groups to become legalized enterprises that supply the value chain with handcrafted products.

Its brand Wakami represents a rustic, yet urban lifestyle and encourages people to connect with one another, the Earth, and their dreams, through its tag line: Be your dream.
