About the Wayuu Women

Our Mochila Bags are solely woven by women of the Wayuu tribe in Colombia who have been taught the art of weaving at a very young age. The tradition has been passed down through many generations. Not only is the art of Wayuu weaving solely reliant on the women, Wayuu children carry their mother’s last name too. This makes women cultural and powerful leaders of the tribe.
Each Wayuu Mochila Bag is completely unique with a design that tells a story about the Wayuu culture and history. To the Wayuu people, this tradition is a symbol of wisdom, intelligence and creativity. One bag can take up to 2 months to create!

These days the Wayuu tribe rely on their beautiful works of art as a way to build financial support for their families, meaning your contribution really makes a difference!
