Our Wayuu mochila bag is brought to life by Wayuu women in the La Guajira peninsula in northern Colombia. This bag takes up to 10 days to weave by hand with just a single strand of thread, making a very tight and strong weave. The pattern is a symbol of the Wayuu culture and a fine example of their ethnic lifestyle. A pouch style bucket bag, this fastens with drawstring and has tassel style details which add to the look. Swing it over your shoulder and go travelling with a ethnic and chic feel!
