A traditional weaving technique from the Wayuu tribe in Columbia - these bags are not only a way of keeping a traditional heritage alive but for the Wayuu it's a way of communicating through their creativity, life as they see it!
The geometric figures represent nature (animals, plants, stars, plants etc..) that surround them together with abstract forms in bright colours, all colours come from vegetable dyes. Wayuu ancestral work together with the artisans on a Fairtrade basis to elaborate a modern design for today's consumer! Each piece is different!
