These are shots that were taken on a trip to La Guajira where the Wayuu people originate from and where they make the Wayuu Mochila Bag. These bags are 100% handmade by traditional weavers. A bag can take up to 15 days to make depending on the other duties a woman may have. These bags are bought by a community representative at a Fair Trade Price. This helps to create a sustainable economic environment fore the Wayuu in difficult circumstances.
