Black/Beige Wayuu Mochila Mini Bag
The rich cultural heritage of the Wayuu is carefully woven into each mochila. These one thread Wayuu bags are crocheted by hand through traditional techniques that have been passed on from generation to generation. The process can take over 3 weeks 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.
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.
In this design you can see the Pulikeruuya: Donkey's Vulva.
