Ruby - Medium Wayuu Mochila Bag

Your handbag is more than just another accessory to carry essentials. It's a fashion statement and a way to express your own style and individuality. Our distinctive premium bucket-style bag is crocheted using a single thread and is known as a “Wayuu mochila”.
This versatile bag can be styled in multiple ways. Wear it as a crossbody, a long shoulder bag, or convert it to a shorter shoulder bag by tying a knot in the strap to your desired length.
Your purchase allows us to help improve the living conditions of our Wayuu children and families in need of the most basic necessities, clean water, food, and power.

*Due to the handmade nature of this product, color, measurements, and bottom design may vary slightly.
These fascinating pieces of art are crafted by indigenous Wayuu women inhibiting the visually striking desert of the La Guajira Peninsula, which borders Northeastern Colombia and Northwest Venezuela.
Wayuu women are responsible for their household. They are only able to crochet in between their household responsibilities which means a single bag, depending on design details and size, can take 15-30 days, on average, to make. Weavers also have different skill levels so some may take more or less time to finish a bag, depending on the size, design complexity, and skill of the weaver. The symbolic patterns and colors represent their culture and environment. Every bag is carefully crocheted and "made with love in every thread".
CLEANING: Turn inside out, place tassels inside the bag, draw closed, and machine wash in cold water on a delicate cycle. Brush tassels while still damp. Hang to dry.
