They are a testament to the craftsmanship and cultural heritage of the Wayuu people, an indigenous community in Colombia.

When you purchase a Wayuu bag, you support the artisans who spend weeks or even months creating these intricate and vibrant designs, using techniques passed down through generations.

Buying a Wayuu bag is more than a fashion statement; it's a way of supporting and celebrating a rich cultural legacy.

So far I have ordered 5 different bags for myself and my daughters and I have 2 daughters in law who love the bags almost as much as I do so GUESS WHAT!! They are getting a bag for their birthdays this year. The decision for which one to buy is the most difficult because I love them all.

It's great to hear you love our bags so much! We're excited that your daughters-in-law will be getting them for their birthdays – picking the right one is always fun.

Love my Mochila Bag

Ordered my 1st Mochila bag. I absolutely love it. I have always had leather shoulder bags and now I'm older they get heavy and hurt my shoulder. My Mochila bag is so comfortable to wear and the colours are stunning. Plenty of room and beautifully made. Will definitely recommend to my friends and anyone else who wants a beautiful individual bag and statement piece.

We're over the moon to hear that your first Mochila bag has been such a hit! It's fantastic that it's giving you comfort without compromising on style – exactly what we strive for. Thank you for the lovely words and for recommending us. We can't wait to see which stunning piece catches your eye next!

Jo-Anne McDonald

Beautiful colours, stunning, craftsmanship is outstanding , compliments everytime I am out with it on my shoulder and also compliments my personality.
The only thing that I would like is a pocket inside the bag to pop some lippie and cash in.. love love ❤️

It's fantastic to hear how much you love your bag and that it's getting so many compliments! We're really touched by your words about the craftsmanship. And thanks for the suggestion about an inside pocket – great idea!

Pam Ellis (Brisbane, AU)
Beautiful handmade bag !

I am extremely happy with the look and size of my bag . The only thing missing is more pockets . I will make a zip bag to accommodate my tissues , wipes , keys , phone and puffer ! There are some pockets in the bag but not sufficient for me !! I will make sure that my internal bag colours compliment the stunning colours of my new bag .

So glad to hear you're loving the look and size of your bag! We appreciate your feedback about the pockets – it's super helpful.
