Our boho chic Blue Hand Woven Mochila Bag from Hilo Sagrado is made by indigenous Wayuu tribespeople inhabiting the visually striking desert of La Guajira Peninsula. The rich cultural heritage of the Wayuu is carefully woven into each product. The process can take over a month to complete, resulting in a object that is not just a bag, but a reflection of deeply rooted traditions and values.
Hilo Sagrado seeks to rescue the cultural heritage of communities in Colombia, by empowering women entrepreneurs through capacity building and the modernization of production centers to develop sustainable textile production. Since 2013, the foundation has promoted ethical trade with a sustainable and inclusive model that seeks to achieve greater socioeconomic wellbeing.
