Have you heard about our #miprimeramochila campaign?
We launched this campaign to get young girls thinking ethically from an early age about where the things they own come from. #mirprimeramochila or "my first bag" was launched not only want to teach young girls to value all of their possessions but also to start from a young age instilling in young girls the importance of supporting other girls.

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.
