The round silhouette slides comfortably over your shoulder with its dual top handles. We think this artisanal carry-all is an ideal addition to city strolls and the beach alike.
Each Guajii bag is entirely made by hand by Wayuu artisans. The Wayuu, known as the people of sand, sun and wind, are the largest indigenous ethnic group in Northern Colombia. The region they lived in, La Guajira, although breathtaking with the contrast of the desert sand with the blue ocean water, has been deeply affected by a major drought.
The Wayuu live in small settlements where they preserve the traditional language, culture and customs passed down from generation to generation. A vital aspect of the Wayuu people is the art of weaving, a symbol of wisdom, creativity and intelligence.
By weaving, the Wayuu people can earn an income for their family while at the same time share their culture and traditions with those who are lucky enough to come upon one.
Slight variations in size or design are to be expected. Due to the artisanal nature of this product, the base of the bag might be different from the images shown. Each base might have an individual design that serves as the artisan’s personal emblem, making each bag distinctly unique.
