A-Line Wayuu Love
Each A-Line Wayuu Love mochila bag is handmade by the indigenous Wayuu women of Northern Colombia and hand-picked by our founder.

Made of wash-and-wear-resistant acrylic fibre manufactured in the La Guajira region of Colombia, each highly durable bag takes up to a month to complete.
