Castellano Ethnic Origins

Wayuu Taashii Mochila Brown Bag

Regular price €224.00

Our Wayuu mochila bag is brought to life by Wayuu women in the La Guajira peninsula in northern Colombia. This bag takes up to 25 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.

Social Impact :
