Uribia Mini Mochila Grey

Regular price £55.00 ex VAT 0.0

UK price inc VAT £66.00

Grey mini handwoven cotton bag with short handles, tasseled drawstring and pompoms.

Each mochila is handwoven in Colombia by female members of the indigenous Wayuu tribe using techniques passed down for centuries from generation to generation.

The Wayuu, a nomadic tribe located in northeast of Colombia, and the northwest of Venezuela, are the largest indigenous community in Colombia where they inhabit the region of La Guajira. They are known as the people of the sun, sand and wind.

The Wayuu are best known for the beautifully coloured crochet textiles. Using techniques passed down for centuries, through their creations Wayuu women share their cosmological view of the universe. The passing down of weaving techniques marks a rite of passage. Each bag is handwoven and takes 25 to 30 hours to create.

The mochila is the Wayuu women’s way to tell their story, dreams, and the geometric shapes known as Kanaas are inspired by nature. Each Kanaas has its own significance and name. Each masterpiece symbolizes their tradition, culture and customs, which they are passing onto their future generation through crocheting and weaving.
