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”. 

HIGHLIGHTS OF A PREMIUM BAG:

  • Takes 2x longer to make than a double thread bag.
  • Patterns are much more intricate and include an elaborate bottom.
  • High-quality finishings (no-stretch strap, detailed drawstring, and crochet on the cap of the tassel are a few examples).
  • Lighter in weight and less dense due to the single thread versus double thread crocheting technique.

    DETAILS:

    • Material: Acrylic fiber thread
    • Height: 9"
    • Width (base diameter): 7"
    • Single Strap - Drop: 20"

    I love Straccio Rico! I have two of their amazing Wayuu Mochila bags. Not only are they beautiful, well-made, and unique but I love that they benefit the craftswomen who make them. I totally embrace this local, women-owned, multi-generational entrepreneurial business, whose core mission is to help women in developing countries develop cottage businesses of their own.
