We are a family run business selling Wayuu Mochilas and accessories based in London, UK. Our mission is to bring these cultural delights from a remote corner of Colombia to market in the UK and in turn help the Wayuu people expand their current market. We are now buying the absolute finest quality single thread mochilas from a select group of expert weavers. We believe that we have the largest selection of single thread mochilas available; which we have done our best to bring to market at an affordable price, while still maintaining a fair trade business model. Please bear in mind that the vast majority of other companies are selling mochilas of the 2 thread weave which are simply not comparable in terms of quality.
We are able to offer competitive prices as we purchase the mochilas directly from the indigenous communities in northeast Colombia. However we pay a fair price for all of our products and we are extremely committed to supporting the Wayuu people in times of economic and cultural hardship. We therefore also donate 15% of profits back to the local Wayuu communities, where our products are woven. We are currently donating to a small local Wayuu school where the children are in need of basic supplies such as clothing and school equipment such as stationary and exercise books. If you decide to purchase from us please do so proudly and in the knowledge that we are doing our bit to make a small difference in a region that UNICEF lists as the second poorest region of South America, after Haiti.
We guarantee the quality of our bags and as such offer a no quibbles 14 day money back guarantee (sale items excluded) as long as the item is in its original condition. All mochilas are sent recorded delivery within 1 working day of the purchase date.
We hope you enjoy shopping on the site. Please do take the time to read about the Wayuu and the mochilas as each is so much more than just a bag.
We can also arrange wholesale orders - please contact us for further details.
