Artisan made, hand-crocheted, cross body Arhuaca Mochila Bag.
Maxi bag for maxi chic. Un-dyed cream shades of hand spun neutral wool, with pattern work inspired by spirit, tradition and nature. These earthy tones make it easy to style, especially divine with denim.
The large scale of this bag perfectly fits not only your daily essentials, like your phone + your Haiti Design Co Leather card holder and key fob + your Rose Company Lip Balm + your Noto Multi Bene Stain Pot + your Shebobo Clutch + your laptop + ...
We love that it can even serve as a minimalist overnight bag.
Straight from the hands that made them in La Guajira, Colombia. The Mochila bag has become an important representation of Colombian art and traditional craft across the world. Created by families of Arhuaco indigenous peoples of the Sierra Nevada region of Colombia, only Wati (Arhuaco women) can weave the bags together according to custom. These works of art embody tradition, matriarchy, intergenerational hand-crocheted connection. Literally, sustainable, slow fashion infused with spirit. It takes up to one month to make one bag of this size and pattern.
