Mochila Wayuu Handwoven Bags, Handmade in Colombia - Patterns
Mochila Wayuu Handwoven Bags, from Colombia!
These Wayuu Mochila bags are absolutely bright and beautiful! I am so happy I was able to bring some back from Colombia! They are all 100% handwoven with cotton and wool. They are known for their geometric shapes, and vivid colors. Here is a little more history on Wayuu :)
The Wayuu (pronounced “Wah-You”) people are an indigenous Latin American group located in the Guajira Peninsula of northeastern Colombia and Venezuela. ... A central tenet of the Wayuu people's history is the practice of weaving patterned bags, aptly named Wayuu Mochilas.
