The name Yaiza has Canarian origin, specifically from the aborigines of the Canary Islands, a tribe called Guanches who lived in balance with the island’s nature before the Spanish conquerors arrived. The Guanche meaning of the name is something likeflash of light”, “who comes down from the sun” or “as beautiful as the flower”. Today a beautiful small village of Lanzarote, the closest island to the African coast, still bears this beautiful name. In addition, in this place it is a traditional habit to harvest the Indian prickly pear, the fruit of a type of cactus. This fruit since ancient times was used in several ways. On the nutritional level, they provide much more potassium than bananas and dates for example, vitamin E and lots of minerals. In the Canary Islands it is a habit to drink its juice, cook it as jam or even in past times, it contributed to the elaboration of its deep red color for lipstick. There are some old images of traditional Canarian women with their camels (a highly valued animal on the islands), working in the Indian prickly pear fields. This illustration tells the story of Yaiza collecting prickly pears for her family with her camel during the beautiful sunset with its strong african light.
