Our Story

Origin Colombia sells a wide variety of handcrafted Wayuu bags sourced from Colombia. We work in accord with the indigenous Wayuu tribe from La Guajira.

Our mission is to coalesce ethics with aesthetics and provide our customers with bags that are intricately crocheted, with the strings of culture and tradition.

Each bag that we sell is a result of 8-10 weeks of dedicated work by a single woman of the tribe. We aim to get the Wayuu tribe the recognition and the compensation they deserve by sharing their rich cultural heritage with the rest of the world.

Our multi-purpose cross-body bags are one of a kind and promote sustainability at its best. They also bestow our customers with power, the power to make a difference!

Fair Trade

The women who craft our bags are part of the indigenous Wayuu group in La Guajira, the northernmost part of Colombia. They live very simply, and it’s important to us that our collections are produced through fair trade practices that give dignity and support the livelihood of the Wayuu women.

This means that the Wayuu community are paid justly, craft our products within a safe and healthy working environment, and uphold working standards that make us proud to be their partners.


Working together with other organizations to transform the communities of La Guajira, Colombia, into sustainable handicraft production centers, Origin Colombia hopes to play a part in the transformation of Wayuu women into true entrepreneurs who recognize the value of their work. Ultimately, the goal is to help the Wayuu community learn basic business principles and prepare them for entering the international market.

I love it

I feel special when I’m having it on… i got this color and pattern because I’m a little shy person with colors. But this one I love that it can go with everything, dress it up to be chic or use it as casual bag. I love it
