The Wayuu tradition was born through one of our many indigenous groups, the Wayuu tribe. This ethnic group of the la Guajira peninsula in the northernmost part of Colombia for centuries has been crocheting the beautiful and colorful bags with ancient crochet techniques that have been passed from woman to woman for generations. For the Wayuu people and also in my personal belief, colors transmit energy. Vibrant colors transmit happiness that can enhance your mood, and Wayuu bags are exactly that!

Wayuu bags are to be worn all year round, regardless of the season, they look gorgeous with a pair of jeans, shorts,  dress  and even with a winter jacket. Something wonderful about these unique bags from Colombia is the fact they are lightweight and they can carry tons of things inside.

For travelling are the perfect bags, just fold them flat on your suitcase as they don’t lose their shape and they occupy such a small space.
