Original Wayuu Mochila Bags
The Wayuu Mochila Bags that you see in this page are hand woven by the women of the Wayuu tribe of La Guajira, Colombia. The art of weaving is a skill that is passed down through the generations. Designs and patterns are therefore unique and each bag represent a specific meaning to each weaver. All the Mochila Bags are 100% hand made from cotton and up to three weeks are required to complete using a technique called crochet. When buying these original Mochila Bags you are at the same time supporting Wayuu craftsmanship by empowering women in this ethnic community developing their skills and being able to improve their standard of living.
