Inside The Wayuu Mochila Bag

 

"We consider our crafts to be works of art. Each and every culture within Colombia has that richness, and we need to take care of them and embrace them, and we need to continuously work to preserve those traditions. 

Many developed countries would like to have what we have. When people acquire our products, call them mochilas, hammocks, hats, they acquire stories about cultures that dream, that have dreams. They are not just taking any product, they are borrowing a story of a community that has a legacy and history." - Voice of a Wayuu weaver (This video is the property of Artesanias de Colombia).
