Our bags are 100% handcrafted by the Wayúu indigenous women of La Guajira in Colombia who still proudly conserve their cultural traditions through weaving.
We work directly with several independent artisans and their families to bring you high quality, colorful, eye-catching accessories and mochilas.
Each bag takes approximately 30-60 days of weaving to complete.
Every single design celebrates the skill of each artisan and the magic of their creative minds. Colors, designs, and patterns are all different & unique, just like you. These authentic displays of artisanship symbolize their culture, community, passed down ancestral knowledge, and everyday life.
WARNING: wearing this mochila will have heads turning your way.
