Wayúu Tayá Mochila stylish bags for a great cause!

July 13, 2010

I have a collection of these handmade Wayúu Tayá bags and was so excited to recently see coverage on them in WWD & the NY Times (you beat me to my post). Make sure to grab one this summer as they are beautiful and handmade and the proceeds from the sale of these bags benefit the Wayuú indigenous people. The bags are hand-made by Wayuú indigenous women at Shukumajaya, the foundation's women center that helps educate women on parenting and nutrition, family planning and hygiene. All bag items are one-of-kind, unless noted in the description. to purchase these amazing handmade bags please click here.
