Our Wayuu mochila bag is brought to life by Wayuu women in the La Guajira peninsula in northern Colombia. This bag takes up to 15 days to weave by hand with just a single strand of thread, making a very tight and strong weave. The pattern is a symbol of the Wayuu culture and a fine example of their ethnic lifestyle.
Social Impact :
> Support ethical clothing, handmade, eco clothing, fair trade clothing, wayuu craftsmanship and sustainable fashion.
> Empowering Wayuu women to develop their weaving skills.
>Through CASTELLANO’s products, the cultural heritage and internationally renowned weaving skills are being preserved
