Nina Mochila™ bags are 100% handmade by the Wayuu community, an indigenous group that resides in the  Guajira Peninsula, in northern Colombia and northwest Venezuela. Especially, the Wayuu women are the artists behind these creations that are pieces of art. Each bag has a unique design that represents the culture, the historical heritage and the philosophy of life of the Wayuu community. Each bag has a unique pattern with a variety of prints and colors. The Wayuu women thread all Wayuu mochilas, including the Uuchi – Wayuu Bucket Bag, by a needlework technique called crochet, and each mochila could take up to 20 days to manufacture. The Mochilas Wayuu are a fashionable accessory that every fashionista has in her closet, but also an important income for the Wayuu community, because buying these bags, you contribute to the preservation of the Wayuu traditions and to the improvement of their life conditions.
