Latin Asia was conceived with the objective of becoming Cultural Ambassadors of our Colombian, and overall Latin American Culture in Asia. The arts and crafts of Latin America are an authentic representation of the cultures dating back to the indigenous communities of the Pre-Hispanic colonial period.
We work directly with the communities, which allows us to bring them closer to the consumers overseas. Managing the whole supply chain enables us to optimize our costs and offer our Colombian creations worldwide competitively. Currently, we focus on Colombian Wayuu bags and other crafts and plan to grow our product line to represent additional indigenous communities from Colombia and all Latin America.
Latin Asia is incorporated in Malaysia as Rausch Latin Asia SDN. BHD. by Colombian Paisa expatriates. We consolidate and export Wayuu Bags, and other crafts in Barranquilla, and serve the Eastern Hemisphere from Kuala Lumpur. For wholesale clients and for orders from the Americas, we ship directly from Colombia.
