Elegant and vibrant is how we define out Navarra mochila bags. Handcrafted by Wayuu tribe in La Guajira, Columbia, this crossbody bag represents the ancestral weaving mastery of native artisans. Double thread crocheting technique is employed to knit exquisite geometric patterns into the mochila shoulder strap. A definitive street style statement for women who wish to keep it classy yet stylish.
The versatile Wayuu bag is a perfect pick for beach, vacations, night out, grocery shopping, or adventurous sports. Bring on some fun to your minimalist outfit in a subtle way by carrying this lightweight, handwoven Mochila bag brought right from the Colombian lands.

Women from Wayuu tribe take great pride in their traditional crocheting skills. Each Wayuu bag is made with attention to detail and quality with perfectly chosen contrasting threads to give a sophisticated, modern, and minimalistic finish. Each mochila bag has a feel of age-old techniques from the pre-Colombian times.
At Bochica, we pay tribute to the 10 to 15 days of effort of each artisan to weave a single Mochila bag with such perfection by giving them a chance to earn through Fair Trade.
Together, we’ve initiated a massive effort to bring you the masterful creations of indigenous Colombian tribes and, in return, provide the 2 to 3 million post-Civil war displaced people a stable source of income.
