Wayuú Mochila bags are from Northern Colombia near the Caribbean coast in the La Guarija region. Intricate geometric patterns and colors are crocheted by the Wayuú indigenous women, whom create these designs past down from generation to generation. These patterns represent their culture, nature, spirit, and traditions. The Wayuú women learn their master crocheting techniques from a very young age and is integral to their way of life.
These are single thread Mochila bags, which is a technique using individual balls of one continuous thread for each color. This creates a much tighter knot, making it very durable, washable, and is made to not stretch or unravel. Double thread designs are also made, which cuts down the fabrication times in half. These single thread bags take 3-4 weeks to complete and are the original authentic Wayuú Mochilas. Double threaded bags are less expensive, because they are less intricate, not as durable, and the straps will stretch over time. Our single thread Mochila bags have a very tight strap that doesn’t stretch and the tight knitting makes it lighter yet more durable. Each Wayuú bag has a matching single thread drawstring and strap. These beautiful bags are one of a kind and are of premium quality.
Size: 9” diameter circular base. The bag itself is approximately 12” x 12” and and the strap has a drop length of about 21”.
These quality handmade bags are durable, washable, and fashionable.
