Arhuaca Mochila Bag ~caminos

Regular price £120.00 Sale

A traditional Colombian Mochila bag made by the Arhuaco of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, this beautiful bucket style bag is made from 100% sheeps wool - hand spun and crocheted by a small group of female weavers. 

The natural variation in the colour of the wool creates a beautiful striped affect and results in each bag being entirely unique.

The traditional design on this bag symbolizes the 'caminos' or pathways which weave through the mountians and  connect the communities of the Sierra to one another and to their land.

sizes ~ small 28 x 33cm / large 33 x 40cm
