Handmade by a traditional process passed down from mother to daughter for centuries. Wayuu women who make these beautiful works of art face many hardships in life and lack access to clean running water and proper healthcare for their children. Education, economic infrastructure, and help from the Colombian government are lacking in their region and work is scarce.
The Mochila Bag is more than just an accessory, it represents hope for a better life for these hardworking tribal women who wish to maintain their traditional culture. Sales of Mochila Bags have helped families pay for schooling and proper care for their children. Help support Wayuu Women today!
