Hey great Soul! 
I warmly welcome you to my shop

IMG_2115_edited.jpg

"With love, respect and humility towards the people who have preserved their culture and traditions and who share them with us."

Here you will find ethically sourced and handmade products as well as shamanic handicrafts that directly support indigenous peoples and cultures in Latin America.  

 

If you had told me two years ago that I have an online shop today, I would probably have looked at you in amazement. So how did this come about? Let me take you with me in my experiences.  

 

I traveled to Latin America and didn't know that this time would have a lasting impact on me. I had previously come into contact with cacao in Germany and already felt that this would only be the beginning. Cacao - a plant that carries a heart-opening energy and strengthens the connection to ourselves. Connects us again and can elicit the sparkle in our hectic everyday life. Cacao supports you in a gentle existence and can also work on a deeper level - if you allow it...

​Ruk'u'x Ulew was founded in 2016 by Cecilia, an indigenous Maya woman and mother of three children. She herself was born and raised in this wonderful place in Guatemala.

I feel very honored and appreciate being able to work with her anew every day. She has such a big heart, always a smile for you and prepares you the best cocoa with love & lots of chilli;) 15 wonderful women work with her in a collective!  

 

It quickly became clear to me that I wanted to support the warm people and their Maya culture.  

 

With this ceremonial cacao you are not only doing something good for yourself, you are also supporting the wonderful indigenous women's collective Ruk'u'x Ulew [Roo-Koosh-Ouh-Leh-Ou] from Guatemala, who produce this delicious, ceremonial cacao. Each bean is gently fermented, sun-dried, lightly roasted over an open wood fire and then peeled by hand. This is how the unmistakable, rich and full taste of this cacao and cacao beans is created. Every step is carried out with love, joy and careful handwork. The cacao is ground in small batches, freshly packaged and now enjoyed all over the world.  

 

My vision is to have a direct connection from the source to every person or raw material involved in its production. In this way I can guarantee that the products and materials are traded ethically, fairly, ecologically and sustainably. I concentrate on natural materials and fabrics and would like to combine the culture of Latin America, traditional craftsmanship and age-old skills with conscious and sustainable, ethical, ecological people here in Europe and everywhere else in the world.  

I hope I was able to give you a small but fine insight into my motivation with which this shop was born into the world and is lovingly and carefully managed and developed by me.  

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support, I and all other women appreciate that very much.  

 

Much love to you!
