Original Wayuu Big Hobo Basket. Handmade in Colombia. Orange.

$54.00

Each Wayuu bag is a unique work of art, created as the result of hundreds of years of weaving tradition. All Wayuu Mochila Bags are different because, through geometric figures, artisans of the Wayuu Tribe express their perception of the world and their intimate relationship with nature. Our product team travels to La Guajira, Colombia to directly get each product from the hands of artisans and merchants. Our goal is to take these inspirational, unique products and make them available for everyone. Every item you purchase contributes to the growth and development of the Wayuu community.

Wayuu Hobo Bags are crocheted bags, handmade by a native tribe that lives in the northern peninsula of South America, the Wayuu. Most of the weavers are women, but men also make these beautiful fashion items.

What started as a way for the Wayuu women to artfully evoke the cultural teachings and creative drawings of their ancestors, the practice of weaving multi patterned, colored and shaped handbags came to being. Each bag produced by the Wayuu is meticulously threaded by hand, with no two bags having the same design.
