Welcome to the family! Your new Wayuu bag isn't just an accessory; it's a piece of art that tells a story. Handcrafted with passion by the Wayuu people of Colombia, each bag brings a splash of color and a whisper of ancient traditions to your wardrobe. To ensure your Wayuu bag remains as vibrant and spirited as the day you received it, we've put together this comprehensive care guide. Follow these steps to keep your bag looking stunning:

Spotless Elegance: Spot Cleaning Basics

  • Encounter a minor spill? No worries. Gently dab the area with a soft, damp cloth. If using detergent, opt for a mild, bleach-free option and always test on a less visible area first to safeguard your bag's vivid hues.

Gentle Embrace: Hand Washing Your Wayuu Bag

  1. Prepare: Fill a basin with cool to lukewarm water, mixing in a pinch of gentle laundry detergent.
  2. Clean: Submerge your bag, caressing it softly to dislodge any dirt. Remember, the Wayuu bag's intricate weave requires a tender touch, so avoid vigorous scrubbing.
  3. Rinse: Flush the soap away with cool water, changing the water several times to ensure all detergent is removed.

Bask and Dry: Preserving the Weave

  • After washing, ease out excess water with care. Twisting or wringing can harm the bag's structure. Lay it on a clean towel away from direct heat or sunlight, or hang it in a spot where air circulates freely, ensuring it dries thoroughly and retains its shape.

Loving Care: Everyday Tips

  • Shield your Wayuu bag from harsh chemicals and sharp objects. Although built to accompany you on many adventures, it's not fond of heavy burdens that could stress its beautiful weave.
  • Store your treasure in a dry, airy place. Plastic bags and containers are foes, potentially trapping moisture and fostering mildew.

At, we're more than a brand; we're custodians of a rich heritage. By caring for your Wayuu bag as recommended, you're not only maintaining its aesthetic appeal but also honoring the craftsmanship and culture of the Wayuu people. Enjoy your vibrant companion, and wear it with pride, knowing you're part of a larger story of tradition and artistry.
