This purse was designed and handmade by artisans in Colombia, South America.
We use a mix of techniques to complete our designs and our main goal is to
highlight and celebrate the beauty of mother nature.
We believe in supporting and showcasing our folklore, Latin-America has a long
and rich history of different folk styles, with this design we have chosen to
bring together 2 of our most significant styles of our region, Molas and Wuayu
design not only because we are captivated by its beauty but also to support,
empower the women of the Kuna and Wuayu communities, who learned their art
style from generation to generation.

We use 2 main materials for this purse, Molas textiles, and high-quality napa
leather. Each Mola sheet is handmade and the combination of colors and designs
makes each Mola one of the kind.

The Mola, or Molas, is a hand-made textile that forms part of the traditional
women's clothing of the Kuna people from Panama and Colombia in the Caribbean
Coast. Molas are made using a reverse appliqué technique. Several layers
(usually two to seven) of different-colored cloth (usually cotton) are sewn
together; the design is then formed by cutting away parts of each layer. The
designs and patterns are unique for every artisan women as they incorporate
both traditional and modern elements from their culture and nature.
The Wayuu (pronounced "Wah-You") people are an indigenous group inhabiting the
visually striking desert of La Guajira Peninsula which borders the northeastern
of Colombia and Venezuela. The Wayuu live in small settlements called
"rancherias" which consist of five or six houses. Within these rancherias, the
Wayuu people are able to preserve a way of life that has been passed down
through the generations and remains unscathed by modern culture. To create each
unique design Wayuu women use a specific technique of placing a single cotton
thread in a manual loom. Wayuu women learn the art of crocheting at an early
age and legends say that Wayuu women were originally taught to weave and create
these complex patterns in their designs to mirror the webs created by a
spider-like deity Wale ´Kerü.
