Our Wayuu “mochila” bags are fascinating pieces of art and the perfect addition to any ensemble.  Each bag is hand crocheted by indigenous Wayuu people primarily located in the desert region of La Guajira in northern Colombia and northwest Venezuela.

A Wayuu mochila is a unique and timeless accessory that is very labor-intensive and can take up to a month to create.  It features a drawstring closure, allowing you to secure your belongings, a spacious interior for carrying all your essentials and a long, wide strap that makes it comfortable to wear.

Your purchase provides economic opportunity for the Wayuu people and contributes to preserving their traditional crafts.
