inspired by maze and box pattern, the crocheted print is one of a kind. Never would you find such an intricately detailed crocheted crossbody bag as it’s a difficult art to master.
This gorgeous Wayuu bag was crafted using a double thread technique for the body and the straps were tightly handwoven using a similar technique but that of single thread bags. Therefore, the strap is non-stretchable and has a stiff finishing.
With a beautifully thick tassel, this mochila bag can make a great street style fashion statement.
This nifty Wayuu bag is ideal for beach days, shopping, night out, vacation, gym, or pool parties. The high-quality fabric would never fail you!
Gift this timeless bag as a souvenir to anyone who is fond of traditionally handcrafted accessories.
• Double thread technique for the body

Women from the 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.
