Beautiful handmade Mochila bags have a very meaningful origin..
On the very northern part of the South American continent, by the Caribbean coast, there is an Amerindian ethic group living called Wayuu. The Wayuu people lives in an area called La Guajira Peninsula, which covers both northern Colombia and northwest Venezuela. There are around 434.000 Wayuu people and they have their own language called Wayuunaiki.
Cultural aspects are very important for the Wayuu people and they have kept their traditions for generations. Wayuu women are taught from a young age how to become a leader with wisdom and deep knowledge of their culture. From the time when they are very young and as they grow up, they learn how to weave and express themselves through the weaving of different items such as these extraordinary handbags, also known as mochilas. Each mochila is handmade by one woman and she spends several days, sometimes up to twenty days to finish one bag. The mochilas’ unique patterns and color combinations reflects the women’s culture and creativity with inspiration from the elements of the earth and the nature. This combination brings incomparable authenticity to each piece. Centuries of history and traditions are presented to the lovers of meaningful fashion items.
