The Wayuu tribe, located in Colombia, was most famous for its crafts, more specifically by the Wayuu bags, main source of income of the tribe.
As all the work of making handbags is 100% manual, so it is virtually impossible to have two bags the same, which makes the work even more unique and special.
Always very deprived, cheerful and colorful, the bags are making the head of the fashionistas on duty. Their success is so absurd that despite the price is nothing inviting, they run out quickly in websites and physical stores all the same.
Are already in love? I’m crazy for wanting one for myself, but I confess that I can’t bring myself to pay the actual price at around 600 R$! For those who are about to travel to there, in the “source” (Colombia) we find the most desired bags of the moment from 20 bucks! A fairer price, don’t you agree?
From what I researched, the value of the merchandise is directly related to the complexity of their geometric shapes and each “design” has the meaning of some element of the tribe, as food, stars and animals.
So … If anyone is going to ride through Colombia, please bring back the souvenir.
Meanwhile … We’re just loving the looks divos mounted with handbags and praying for the Chinese girls started manufacturing them too!
These handbags perfectly mix with our climate, and various bloggers have already joined this fashion:
And then girls … What do you think?
Have you seen any wayuu bag sold around here?
