Description

We reinvented the traditional mochila bag in our mini mochila bag to create an elegant, comfortable, and stylish bag.This piece was created in collaboration with the Wayuu tribe, a community settled for centuries in the northernmost point of Colombia. The weave that we used for our Sabina bag was widely known by the Wayúu masters in the last century; however, in recent years it lost much of its popularity. As the older masters who carried the knowledge of this technique began to pass away, the weave that you have in your hands was severely threatened. We decided to rescue it by creating an up-to-date piece. Each bag is hand-woven for approximately 15 days by a Wayúu artisan. Then it is intervened with contemporary details by another craftsman in our atelier in Cali.

We believe in a “Chain of Love” where all the people involved in the creation of the piece that comes to you, receive recognition and respectful treatment. In this way we support the communities consistently and honestly throughout the year. We hope you enjoy your bag as much as we did creating it!
