Welcome to Sainn Wayuu Artesanías!

We put our hearts into each piece we decorate, so our name fully identifies us because Sainn Wayuu means “Wayuu heart” in Wayuunaiki, the native Wayuu language.

Mochilas

Hand-made bags woven with love by the Wayuu Tribe women. They are crocheted, combining needle and loom fabric techniques. Elaborated in cotton with geometric designs and vibrant colors that are a representation of universe, nature and animals. Each bag is a unique piece and one-of-a-kind work of art. It can take up to five weeks for the Wayuu woman to finish only one bag due to its handmade nature.

These mochilas are not just bags, they are pieces of expression of the Wayuu culture and every time that you purchase and wear one, you are supporting the jobs and traditions of the tribe.
