STORY

HANDWOVEN BY THE WOMEN OF THE WAYUU TRIBE

 

The Wayuu tribe occupy the harsh desert lands in the north of Colombia and into Venezuela. It is said that the art of weaving was taught to their ancestors by a mythical spider called Waleker. To this day, the art remains a sacred part of their culture and identity. Each Wayuu piece is beautifully handwoven by just one woman and can take 20 to 30 days to complete.
