Braided Tote Black Wayuu BagSarú Artesanías
Made by Wayuu artisans, 45Km from Riohacha - La Guajira.¬†
The Way√∫u are¬†a group of indigenous people that inhabit the Guajira peninsula, the most northeastern part of Colombia. This community with a matriarchal structure has adapted to the inclement weather of a desert with amazing landscapes facing the Caribbean Sea.
Waleker, the spider, taught the Wayu√∫ woman to weave. Its fabric rests on the myth and initiation rites of the adolescent confinement. Tough, creative, supportive, hospitable, respectful of the word, the Way√∫u jealously preserve their deep cultural traditions, their attachment to the land, their own language and share in their 'rancher√≠as' a different world from that of the 'Arijunas' (foreigners) .
