The rich cultural heritage of the Wayuu is carefully woven into each mochila. These one-thread Wayuu bags are crocheted by hand through traditional techniques that have been passed on from generation to generation. The process can take over 3 weeks to complete, resulting in an object that is not just a bag, but a reflection of deeply rooted traditions and values.
On the surface, the bucket-shaped mochila features bold and bright patterns that are designed by the Wayuu people. Each mochila has a unique, natural and bohemian appeal.
DIMENSIONS: Bag: 7 x 6 inches / 18 cm x 15 cm
Strap: 47″ / 120 cm
Hilo Sagrado products are 100% handmade, therefore each bag might slightly differ from these dimensions.
