Wayuu Mochila at Ophelia!

We have recently returned from Colombia and while we were there we made sure to bring home some of the new “it” bags for the season:

 

 

These are Wayuu mochilas. “Wayuu” refers to the to the indigenous tribe of  Colombians who create the “mochilas”, or bags. Each mochila is handcrafted by a Wayuu tribeswoman and requires as much as 40 hours to complete. The colors and patterns are chosen by it’s crafter, imparting special significance  and uniqueness to each bag. In addition, the monies generated by the tribeswomen are used to improve village living conditions and sustain local economies.

 

 

The word is out that we have Wayuu Mochilas in our Grayton store, so come get yours soon!!!
