These Mochilas are entirely handmade by the Indigenous women of the Wayùu Tribe of Guajira – Colombia. An ancient art that has been handed down from generation to generation for centuries. Girls learn to crochet from a very young age and it is an integral part of their lives. Legend has it that it was the spider “Wale Keru” who taught them to weave the traditional kanas. In the Walùu culture, crochet work in as expression of wisdom, intelligence and creativity. Guided by their emotions, generations of women weave centuries of experience into colorful shades of Mochilas.
