Black Diamond Wayuu Tote Bag with Pompons
The rich cultural heritage of the Wayuu is carefully woven into each mochila. These bags are crocheted by hand through traditional techniques that have been passed on from generation to generation. The process can take over a month to complete, resulting in an object that is not just a bag, but a reflection of deeply rooted traditions and values.
On the surface, the bucket- shaped mochila features bold and bright patterns that are designed by the Wayuu people. Each mochila has a unique, natural and bohemian appeal. A sturdy shoulder strap makes the bag a functional item that is convenient for both work and leisure use.
Most of the Wayuu's desings are representations of important symbols in their culture, that's why within the compositions, they make figures that express in an abstract way the essence of the fauna and flora that surround their people.
