The Wayuu people are an indigenous Latin American group inhabiting the desert of La Guajira Peninsula in Colombia. The Wayuu people preserve a traditional way of life that remains unscathed by modern times. One of the most significant aspects of culture that the Wayuu women practice and pass on from generation to generation is the art of weaving. It is considered as a symbol of wisdom, intelligence, and creativity. According to legend, the tradition comes from "Wale´kerü", a spider that taught the women how to weave their creative drawings into intricate Wayuu designs. Each design is unique to the weaver, telling a story through its colors, patterns and shapes. It is a detailed and time-consuming process. A single Wayuu bag, for example, can take up to a full month to complete.

Be Wayuu, be unique, be Mystique…
