Product Description:

Our stunning bosque and its soft colour palette is perfect fro around town and even better for on the beach. The swirl design is very traditional in Colombia and signifies the jungles further along the coast towards Santa Marta.

This particular design is one of a range that has been exclusively designed for TMAC by Maria Josefa Tiller from the Oorokot Wayuu Community, La Guajira. Every piece in the Wayuu Collection is made by a highly skilled female artisan and the sale of which goes directly to support her and her family.

Please note that our mochilas and mochilitas come in a range of different sizes - you can find out about the difference in more detail in this blog post. We have measured each individual bag, check out the exact dimensions of the Bruja below.

Our medium single thread mochilas take approximately three and a half weeks to make. The entire process is carried out by hand by Indigenous Wayuu women, who have learnt their skills from generations of women before them.



Why a Tmac Mochila?

There is a woman who is the envy of all whenever she meets up with her girlfriends. Whether it's a trip to see the sights in a European capital city, a Beach Holiday in Tulum, a weekend in the Hamptons or covered in glitter at Burning Man, we are here to help you become that woman.
Now listen up, we're going to let you into a little secret... that woman knows that the clothes they are wearing and accessories they have chosen need to be more than beautiful, they need to tell a story. And a good one.

"Where did you get that bag?"....
... who wants to answer [Insert soulless high street chain store name here] when you could be telling the story of Celina and the hundreds of years Wayuu heritage and traditions that are behind it.

By buying one of these beautiful bags you’re not only adding a one of a kind bag to your collection, you are supporting womankind in the process - financially, of course, but also by sharing the story - we have to work together ladies - where better to start than with a beautiful bag? It’s actually kind of obvious.


What’s in the Box?

All of our Wayuu Collection comes hand packaged in a beautiful box, with a description of where your pieces have come from, who made it and a set of cards to share with friends and family so you can show off that you are a conscientious consumer - it’s something to be proud of! 
 

Community Description:

The Wayuu Collection was created by a cooperative of indigenous women living deep in the Guajira desert on the border between Colombia & Venezuela. Every one of these traditional mochilas are completely unique and made in using the traditional Wayuu techniques.
