Wayuú Tayá Susu Woven Bags

Wayuú Tayá Susu Woven Bags

What did I tell you? Woven 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 Wayuú Tayá Foundation a non governmental, nonprofit organization founded in 2002 to help improve the lives of Latin-American indigenous communities while maintaining and respecting their traditions, culture and beliefs. The bags are hand-made by Wayuú indigenous women at Shukumajaya, the foundation's women center that helps educate women on parenting and nutrition, family planning and hygiene.

All proceeds go toward helping the foundation achieve their mission!! You can buy the the bags here

What I like about these bags is that they are bright and colorful. I love the woven design on the strap. Plus the free ends were left hanging at the ends of the strap creating a nice little rainbow of fringe. The drawstring pouch styling is super cute and perfect for those casual summer days. Pair this bag with a solid color maxi dress for the perfect look!

  1. Well this is very nice. There are a lot of Wayuus where I live and it is very good to hear from a foundation that stands for their rights, which are often violated.

    Honestly their handcraft is beautiful, and bags like these are just simple, colourful and very versatile specially for summer.

    Great post! I will share it on twitter right now.
