Introducing our stunning Paleteada Wayuu Bag, a true embodiment of traditional craftsmanship and vibrant elegance. Handwoven by skilled artisans from the indigenous Wayuu community in Colombia, this bag showcases their rich cultural heritage and artistic expertise.

It measures 11 inches in diameter and depth. The bag features meticulously crafted straps that measure between 32 and 40 inches, providing versatility in how you choose to wear it.

Each bag is uniquely designed, showcasing a mesmerizing combination of vibrant colors and intricate geometric patterns. The meticulous weaving technique and attention to detail make this bag a true work of art. The Wayuu artisans employ a traditional technique known as "paleteada," which involves meticulously selecting and blending yarn colors to create a harmonious palette that delights the eye.

Crafted from durable and ethically sourced materials, the Paleteada Wayuu Bag is not only a fashion statement but also an ethical choice. By supporting this artisanal community, you contribute to the preservation of their cultural heritage and sustainable livelihoods.

The selling of handcrafts is fundamental to the survival of the Wayuu people. By buying their bags you're helping their economical development and the passing on of their culture. Also, part of the profits will be donated to susceptible communities. Each $50 purchase will help feed 5 Wayuu children through The Wayuu Taya Foundation.
