This handwoven Mochila bag is brought to life by Wayuu artisans in the La Guajira peninsula in northern Colombia. This bag takes up to 25 days to weave by hand with just a single strand of thread, making a very tight and strong weave. The pattern is a symbol of the Wayuu culture and a fine example of their ethnic lifestyle .
This bespoke piece is embellished with Swarovski crystals and is one of a kind. By buying this mochila bag you are supporting the Wayuu craftsmanship and empowering women in this ethnic community to develop their skills and have a better standard of living. Through CASTELLANO’s products, the cultural heritage and internationally renowned weaving skills are being preserved. The combination of colours and crystals add a touch of luxury to this unique fashion accessory. Enjoy this gift just yourself… swing it over your shoulder and go travelling with a luxury and hippie-chic feel.
The Mochila features a thick shoulder strap displayed with Swarovski crystals and an eye-catching tasselled drawstring to close.
Please note that we support the finest crochet technique unique to the Wayuu people. The quality speaks for itself and it will last for years. The price varies depending on the intricacy of the weave and the Swarovski crystals on each bag.
