Cristina Woven Tote
The most luxurious bag for every occassion - weekends away, trips to the shops, picnics in the garden... Each bag is beautifully hand woven in the highest quality weave by our artisans in the desert lands of La Guajira in the most northern part of Colombia, each taking almost a month each to complete.
The Wayuu tribe occupy the harsh desert lands in the north of Colombia and across 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 the Wayuu culture and identity. Each unique piece is beautifully hand woven by just one woman in the desert lands and can take 20 to 30 days to complete.
