Product Story

Females learn the crochet technique during their time in 'el encierro'. This is when they are enclosed in an area from their first menstruation cycle. Only female relatives can enter and they learn all that they need to to transition into being a woman, including how to crochet.

The geometric patterns are visual representations of Wayuu life and the natural world, with patterns on bags and baskets rarely being the same.

Each bag takes seven days to make and is made in La Guajira, Colombia.
