Our Story

Straccio Rico is a family-owned business that was founded in 2018 by a grandmother and granddaughter team. Our brand is deeply committed to supporting the Wayuu community in Colombia, and we do this by providing employment and economic opportunities to Wayuu artisans who create our handwoven mochila bags.

Recently, we have expanded our brand with the addition of Junio Blanco Designs, a home decor and design side that complements our handwoven bags perfectly. With Junio Blanco Designs, we are able to combine our love of Wayuu weaving and our passion for interior design, creating beautiful and unique pieces for your home.

Based in Charleston, SC, our brand is dedicated to preserving and promoting the art of Wayuu mochila weaving while also providing a source of income and financial stability for the Wayuu artisans we work with. We believe in using our business as a way to give back to the Wayuu community and support their cultural traditions.

Thank you for choosing Straccio Rico and Junio Blanco Designs for your handcrafted and beautifully designed products.
