Handcrafted in Colombia
Sailor Mochila Shoulder Bag by Hilo Sagrado. Small woven mochila featuring a graphic black, white and grey pattern and tassel tie closure. Handwoven in Colombia.
The rich cultural heritage of the Wayuu is carefully woven into each mochila. These bags are crocheted by hand through traditional techniques that have been passed on from generation to generation. The process can take over 3 weeks to complete, resulting in a object that is not just a bag, but a reflection of deeply rooted traditions and values.
On the surface the bucket- shaped mochila features bold and bright patterns that are designed by the Wayuu people. Each mochila has a unique, natural and bohemian appeal.
Bag: 9.4 x 7.8” / 24 cm x 20 cm
Strap: 47” / 120 cm
