Gorgeous piece of artwork.

Love my bag. Somehow feel part of the process and so many beautiful comments by complete strangers.

Anne Hewson (Sydney, AU)
Stunning bags

I ordered 5 different bags of various sizes and I'm thrilled with them. All the bags delivered that pop of colour we all need in our lives. And the company gifted me with a small zippered purse which will be my work wallet for cash and my licence. Thankyou Mochila!
I am giving these bags as retirement gifts for 2 of my work friends, another for my sister's birthday and the smallest one for my daughter, the 30 year olds don't lug around stuff like I used do, and probably still do really, hence I'm keeping the larger one for myself. The thing I love most about Mochila bags after their vibrancy, is the light weight of these bag. Some of my leather bags are so heavy before I even put anything in them!!
These bags are comfortable to wear and the width of the shoulder or crossbody straps is perfect.
People love and do comment on my bag, it doesn't fade into the background.

Chris C (Melbourne, AU)
Love it

While I really love this bag and can see the great quality I thought from the pics it was black and white but my mistake it's navy & white. Also the size confuses me as it's no where near as big looking at the video, but that aside I really do love it it's roomy enough for an everyday bag and looks great with my usual jeans and t. I will purchase again as there were so many different coloured ones I liked

Chris C (Melbourne, AU)
Nice but

The size doesn't seem right. It's quite wide but only about 20cm high. Also I'm sure the 1 I looked at was black and white. The 1 I received is navy and white. Still a nice bag but not quite what I expected

karen fugagnolo (Glen Iris, AU)
my mochila

Kim S. (Sydney, AU)
perfect bag for me

I chose a Mochila in neutral colours as I want to be able to use it with everything I wear! I chose the medium size as that is enough for my needs. Will be perfect for trekking around Europe. Beautifully made & the tassels are simply gorgeous!
