Wuitusu - Catalina Handmade Wayuu Mochila bag

Notify me when this product is available:

Artisan-made, hand-crocheted, cross-body Wayuu Mochila Bag.

Maxi bag for maxi chic. Yellow, red and lavender with pattern work inspired by spirit, tradition and nature. These earthy tones make it easy to style, especially divine with denim.

In the Wayuu culture, a myth says that a spider-like deity taught a Wayuu woman how to knit. Wayuu bags represent the Wayuu women's lives. They carry their lives. Each bag is unique and may take about 10 days to be made.

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.

  • Approximately 9 to 13 inches in diameter and depth, and the straps measure between 32 and 40 inches
  • Synthetic fibers which can last for many years
  • Ethically made in Colombia

Wuitusu is dedicated to their motto: "Beauty with a Conscience." The brand works with Wayuu artisan families, straight from Colombia, to bring gorgeous handmade items that celebrate tradition. The Wayuu society is matriarchal, these pieces of art are created by indigenous women and sisters. These bags embody intergenerational hand-crocheted connection. Literally, sustainable, slow fashion infused with spirit. Wuitusu works with The Wayuu Taya Foundation, a non-profit organization that was founded 20 years ago, so every purchase helps feed Wayuu children.
