Makki mini Wayuu Crossbody bag

Our Petit Wayuu backpack is hand-woven by Wayuu women on the La Guajira peninsula in northern Colombia. Its Osonush fabric takes between 10 to 15 days to be made using a knotting technique that allows a very tight and strong fabric. The pattern is a symbol of the Wayuu culture and a good example of their ethnic lifestyle.
