Unique hand made clutches made by the women in Venezuela.
Wayúu (Pronounced “Wah-You”) is the native Indigenous group living in the departments of Guajira ( northern Colombia and northwest Venezuela) on the Caribbean coast.
Wayuu bags or Mochila bags are a traditional craft that has been practiced by Wayuu women for hundreds of years.
The craft of crocheting Wayuu bags is an art that is learned from a young age.
Women through their weavings are main supporters of their families. They weave numerous patterns in a variety of techniques, forms and colours, using one or two threats of string taking them up to 3 weeks to crochet and weave every single bag.
