What is Wild Wawa?
Wild Wawa creates handcrafted, one of a kind, items primarily made out of 100% certified organic Peruvian Pima cotton, some of the finest in the world.
Their hope is that since the items are hand-crafted the garments will be treated as heirlooms and passed down to generations in families. This dream also lends well to their sustainability mission.
Who is the Wild Wawa owner?
Mother-daughter team, Marina (mother) and Micaella (daughter) are the co-founders of Wild Wawa. In 2015, Micaella had just given birth to her first daughter, Valentina, and was living in Brazil due to her husband’s job. When Marina was making trips back and forth from Peru to Brazil to spend time with her daughter and granddaughter, they would talk about their dream of starting a children’s clothing brand.
Valentina was the inspiration of the brand due to being a “wild one” from the beginning of her life. Coupled with the word “wawa”, which means baby in Quechua, the name Wild Wawa was born. The brand officially launched in 2016.

Is Wild Wawa organic?
Wild Wawa uses GOTS-certified organic pima cotton in many of their items, with handcrafted touches that showcase the skill and timeless beauty of their artisans.
By using GOTS-certified organic cotton for their layettes and essentials, Wild Wawa ensures they are using the purest materials possible, free from any harmful toxins and chemicals. This also ensures ethical and sustainable standards are being met.
GOTS is the Global Organic Textile Standard, which is the world’s leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. This means, every part of the process is certified organic, with rigorous and routine audits and testing to ensure compliance.
Wild Wawa’s Pima cotton is sourced from Peru, which has some of the world’s finest in quality due to its ideal growing conditions and extra long staple length compared to other cotton fibers. The long length lends to extremely soft fabric, and it is almost entirely harvested by hand. This creates an extremely soft fiber since it’s made up of the fluffiest part of the bulb. Pima cotton is also extremely durable and highly resistant to pilling. The Peruvian Pima cotton can be washed a hundred times and the fabric doesn’t get worn down or scratchy like conventionally processed cotton.
Where is Wild Wawa manufactured?
Everything is handmade with love in Lima, Peru by a small team of incredibly talented artisans. Marina has over twenty years experience in the children’s apparel industry with prior ownership of a children’s clothing company named Victoria Kids.
Many of the same women Wild Wawa works with today, have been working alongside Marina for over twenty years. They love what they do and are creatives at heart. Wild Wawa knows that being a mom is a huge priority for many, which is why they provide their artisans with the opportunity to work from home so they can care for their families.
