Ka’i Wayuu – Mochila Bags from Colombia

Ka’i, meaning “the sun” in the Wayuu language, is one of the most identifying symbols of this region, representing the arid landscape where the Wayuu community is found. Located in the Northeast corner of Colombia and crossing over into Venezuela, the Wayuu indigenous people live in an exotic location where the desert meets the Caribbean ocean. Getting to their community is no easy task, as the wide desert makes a 4×4 vehicle an absolute necessity.

At Ka’i Wayuu we want to show off one of the most beautiful, handmade pieces of art that the majority of Wayuu women dedicate their lives to – Wayuu Mochila Bags – which they intricately crochet.  With vivid geometric prints and colors representing symbols of Wayuú mythology, each bag is unique showcasing the creativity and spirtuality of the artist who created it.

The Wayuu community lacks the basic necessities of life such as potable water, electricity or even sufficient food. However, by purchasing a bag, you can help the Wayuu People. We work directly with a group of 15 women to maximize the benefit received by each artist.  Although the plight of the Wayuu People is far beyond what a small business such as Ka’i Wayuu can provide, it is our goal to raise awareness of the struggles the Wayuu face and to grow sustainably so that we may help as many Wayuu Artisans as possible.

Be proud of what you purchase and look good too!
