The Hands Behind

Crafted by the Wayuu Tribe in La Guajira, Colombia
Weaving is said to be an essential part of the Wayuu culture as it symbolizes wisdom, intelligence and creativity. A technique passed down through generations, the Wayuu people see it as their opportunity to tell their story and share their dreams.

Each bag takes 2-3 weeks to weave and assemble. The Wayuu Banjo Mini Sling features a double woven acrylic body that enables it to hold its shape, stitched together with a knitted connector, and finished with four crochet-capped tassels. She’s definitely one chic addition to drum up your outfit!
Slight differences may occur due to its handcrafted nature.
