Description

Because love is love and love and love….and a shattered heart does not mean that is broken. Enjoy this handmade and a unique piece just made for you.

Maria Guti added to its designs and bags the remarkable work from Colombian indigenous community: The Wayuu tribe. Internationally best known for their unique and beautiful Wayuu “mochila” bags, the handmade “Gasa” (the Wayuu’s word for the strap) is only made by the men of the community, due to the hard work that the weaving requires. Maria Guti works ethically and purchases the straps from the Wayuu people, and credits their work without any purpose of overpricing exploitation.
