'GRINGA' - A Spanish term for a female native speaker of English, a foreigner in Latin America.

We are two sisters, Natalie and Christina, born in South London with South American (Colombian) blood. We chose to call ourselves GRINGAS ironically, even though our heritage is Colombian we are usually referred to as foreigners when we visit.

We set up GRINGAS wanting to spread the love and beauty of South American products, all handmade by female artisans while supporting the females that create these one of a kind pieces for us.

We work closely with artisan groups in South America to source ethical and sustainable products. When shopping at GRINGAS you have the opportunity to choose unique, one-of-a-kind pieces while ultimately contributing to a life-changing sustainable income and giving back to the females who made these pieces.
