Made with a single thread, the Gillian Wayuu crossbody bag is one of the finest Wayuu bags to come out of Colombia. The thinner strands used by the artisan result in a more refined texture for this piece and the exacting standards of craftsmanship also happen to make it sturdier than other similar bags.
The unusually distinctive design pattern called Kanaas takes a month of work by the individual artisan. This medium-sized Wayuu is a one-of-a-kind crochet bag that has been crafted with precision, and comes with a wide shoulder strap, blending traditional Wayuu artistry with a decidedly modern geometric motif.
Gillian crossbody bag is an elegant companion for a lunch, tea or dinner event, a topic of conversation in any gathering. Wear it with jeans for a casual look or with a formal look, It’s so adaptable!
