With these hot summer days upon us, our minds are on short skirts, cold drinks and bright colours, so when we had the opportunity to bring in a selection of Wayuu Love bags, we jumped at the chance. The Wayuu are an indigenous group living in South America that dedicate their feelings and wisdom by hand-weaving these colourful shoulder bags. The “mochilas”, as they’re called in Spanish, have not only become an art expression for the Wayuu, but also a way to support their families and communities.
Each bag is one-of-a-kind and takes 20 days to handcraft, so you know you’re getting a special item with every bag. We have a small selection of different colours and patterns in the shop (priced at either $152 or $160) and have found them to be the perfect accessories to our mannequins and displays.
