    Default Wayuu Taya Handbags


    What did I tell you? Tribal handbags are hot and they are turning up everywhere! So it is definitely not too late to grab yourself a fun and festive piece for the upcoming summer season! What I find interesting about these lovely bags you see pictured here, however, is that they are a little more authentic. What do I mean by that? These bags are from the Wayuu Taya Foundation, a non-profit organization that is working to improve the lives of Latin-American indigenous people. Their primary concerns are extreme poverty, malnutrition, high child mortality rates, waterborne diseases, and educational deficiencies. Their mission is to help these communities while maintaining and respecting their beliefs, traditions, and culture. Their bags are made by Wayuu indigenous women at the foundation's women center that educates women on parenting, family planning, nutrition, and hygiene. All proceeds go toward helping the foundation achieve their mission.

    ^^^ Yep, I remember that! StefaniBags just got them in so that was part of the reason for this post. Plus all the tribal-themed bags seem to be following me.

    SURevolution’s limited edition collection of Wayuu Mochila bags just launched today on the brand’s website: Huge Selection!

    A couple of people over on BB mentioned the price is too high. But did you know that each bag is one-of-a-kind and hand woven by one woman, and it takes her approximately one month to complete.
