Mochilas, la máxima representación artística wayuú

The fabric for the Wayuú people is more than a cultural practice, it is the way to conceive and express life as they feel it, something that is in their genes and has passed from generation to generation.

For the most part, the traditional designs embodied by the Wayuú in its handicrafts, is the most authentic expression of how he interprets the material world, his daily life, thus filling with geometric and other stylized figures called Kaanas, these embody a great symbolism and are an abstract representations of his surroundings.
