Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of common questions you might have for us!

How do we give back?
The Wayuu indigenous tribe live in the middle of the Guajira desert. Therefore, there is no tourism, and they are trying to sell amongst themselves. 

Our job is to bring their art from outside their small villages and sell to a bigger audience, such as yourself. Ultimately, the more bags we are able to sell, the more money they are able to make. This provides our artisans with a consistent income.

Additionally, for every bag sold, a portion of each sale is set aside to reach a goal set by our artisans. This could include a water filtration system, solar panels, washing machine, basic necessities etc.
How do I wash my Wayuu Mochila bag?
1. Turn your bag inside out and wash on a delicate cycle. YES, you can use laundry detergent.

2. Remove from washer and smooth out tassels using a brush or comb. This is will keep the tassel strands from curling. Trim any tassel strands that may have come loose with sharp scissors.

3. Dry your bag indoors or outdoors. Our bags are made in the desert and the yarn is resistant to fading. Just don't keep it in direct sunlight for long, extended periods of time. 

Your bag will be dry and ready to use withing 24-48 hours.
