Many of you may wonder why we chose the name Straccio Rico or what does it mean? When we started selling our stunning Wayuu Mochila bags from Colombia, South America the idea of taking theses artisans from “rags” to “riches” sparked the idea of our name. Straccio means “rags” and Rico means “riches” in Italian. We are passionate about what we do and love giving back to these amazing artisans. Every purchase brings them one step closer to going from "rags to riches." Many of the artisans we work with are able to do what they love because of companies like us that help them sell their beautiful pieces of work to people around the world.
Many of them love what they do but sadly do not have the technology to get their work out for others to see and purchase, and that is where we step in. We want these artisans to be able to able to provide for their families and continue doing what they love! We love working on new designs with our artisans too!!
