MAKÚ Project

CRAFTS

The handwoven Mochila bag is made by Wayüü women in La Guajira, Colombia. Each bag takes about 30 days to weave by hand with just a single strand of thread. The pattern is a symbol of the Wayüü women's feelings and emotions at the time they are being made, just like a painter or an artist creating a unique piece of art, each bag is embedded with their feelings and unique stories.   

By buying this mochila bag you are supporting the Wayüü craftsmanship and empowering women in this ethnic community to develop their skills, artistic qualities and have a better quality of life. MAKÚ Project will donate 10% of each sale to their community, creating an emotion of reciprocity.
