A mochila is more than an ordinary handbag, it comes with a story. A single bag can take anywhere from 10-20 days to make and is the main source of income for most Wayuu communities. Our main goal is to keep these women having a steady income through their bags and spread their gorgeous artistry with the rest of the world.

Meet Us!

Hi Wayuu lovers! We are Marty & Emarie, a grandmother and granddaughter team. We started "Straccio Rico" a little over two years ago because we knew we wanted to give back while pursuing our dream of owning a small business. It has been such an incredible experience to say the least. We want to thank you for your support and allowing us this opportunity to give back to the talented artisans of the Wayuu Tribe.


Has the most amazing and unique bags! Favorite Christmas present!

Frida and I went to yoga today and wherever I go I get so many compliments on my bag. The quality of the bag is beautiful.

Best local company EVER! If you don't have a bag from Straccio Rico you're doing something wrong.


Bought this bag for my wife and she loves it! Never a day I don't see her without it.


I love the women and the story behind these bags. I will always support a great cause.
