If you love handmade unique accessories then this beautiful medium lined punch
needle (tapizada) Wayuu mochila bag is for you. Crafted by indigenous artisans
of the Wayuu Tribe in Colombia, this bag recreates with intricate patterns the
life and beliefs of this culture. Each bag is crocheted with precision and
durability by a single member of the community.

The creation and meaning of each bag have been passed through many
generations. This bag is versatile, fashionable, trendy and great for any

The tapizada bag is made using the punch needle embroidery technique,
resulting in stunning textile art. A unique bag that originates on the
Northeast most tip of La Guajira Peninsula in Colombia called “Punta Gallinas”.
Unlike the rest of the peninsula and its vast, untamed desert, this specific
area has a fertile and rich land. The imagery on each bag represents such
diversity in flora and fauna.

Through the motifs, the Wayuu weavers share their cosmological view of the
universe and their traditions.

Thanks to the generous donations of many Isasuma's supporters we are now
sending drinking water donations to the Wayuu on a recurrent basis. Each truck
delivers 1,000 liters of clean water to about 3 communities. You can too become
a hero for this community:

We travel and work directly with a small group of entrepreneur indigenous
women head of household who craft these bags. It is heritage, life style and
economic fulfillment for this community.
Part of Isasuma’s mission is to support and empower small and at risk
communities such as the Wayuu Tribe. The lack of governmental support and a
harsh deserted environment make these bags probably their only sustainable
economic way out of deadly hunger and thirst.
