WAYUU MOCHILA 2 THREAD LARGE Colombian
These mochilas are made by the women of the Wayuu tribes of the La Guajira Peninsula of Colombia. The women support their families with the sale of these bags.
The mochilas are made from acrylic wool which provide faster production, better durability and a more vivid range of colours.
The 2 thread Wayuu Mochilas have a thread running through each line of crochet. This makes the bag quicker to make. Approximately 10 days each. They have a large open centre that has a twisted drawstring closure with large tassels on the end. The strap is hand woven with fringes on each side.
Handmade in Colombia.
Measures average 32cm width, 28cm height, 100cm strap.
