Wachila bags are 100% handmade by women from the Wayuu tribe in Columbia. These beautiful fair trade bags are not only a means of financial support for their families, but they are also a tradition that is deeply rooted into their culture. To the Wayuu people, weaving is a symbol of wisdom, intelligence and creativity.
Due to corruption in the area, the community has experienced discrimination and famine. Wachila is a French business that aims to improve the economic growth of the Wayuun tribe and also donates a portion of their proceeds to social programs in Colombia through their partner Cleo.
Wachila sell other accessories and footwear. Shipping rates depend on region.
