Our Wayuu mochila bucket bag is "made with love in every thread". With your purchase, we can help improve the living conditions of our Wayuu families desperately in need of basic necessities such as clean water, food, and power.
These distinctive pieces of art are meticulously hand-stitched by the indigenous Wayuu people of the La Guajira Peninsula, which borders Northeastern Colombia and Northwest Venezuela. This bag takes up to 20 days to make.
Our bags are tightly woven using a single-thread technique making them extremely durable and perfect for everyday use, beach, travel, and so much more!
When you wear a Straccio Rico Wayuu Bag, “you wear a story”.
