Our Wayuu mochila bag is brought to life by Wayuu artisans in the La Guajira peninsula in northern Colombia. This bag takes up to 25 days to weave by hand with just a single strand of thread, making a very tight and strong weave. The pattern is a symbol of the Wayuu culture and a fine example of their ethnic lifestyle.
Social Impact :
> Support ethical clothing, handmade, eco clothing, fair trade clothing, wayuu craftsmanship and sustainable fashion.
> Empowering Wayuu women to develop their weaving skills.
>Through CASTELLANO’s products, the cultural heritage and internationally renowned weaving skills are being preserved
Swing our handmade Wayuu bag over your shoulder and go traveling with an eco friendly and hippie-chic feel!
The Mochila features a thick shoulder strap and an eye-catching tasseled drawstring to close. Please note that we support the finest crochet technique unique to the Wayuu people. The quality speaks for itself and it will last for years.
Due to the handmade nature of each design, size and shape will differ slightly. Typical dimensions (approx.): L: 28 cm, W: 36cm, D: 23cm, strap length: 110 to 120cm.
