The Arhuaco reservation inhabits the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, a ridge that is located in northern Colombia. This specific bag was crafted in the Cesar region, by a women's co-op whose aim is to keep the tradition alive for generations to come.
These artisanal bags are worn by both men and women. Wear it across your body or on one shoulder.
Each mochila is hand-made and takes about 20 days to craft; therefore each bag is completely unique. This natural colored mochila represents protection, purity, peace.
