This lovely bag is inspired by the Maple Leaf. Sometimes Wayúu women like to experiment with new designs and the result is this amazing display of crochet artistry.
Colors don’t have specific meanings for the Wayúu. However, as the bag is meant to capture a piece of the artist’s life, colors are associated with the state of mind. Bright colors are often used when the artist is feeling happy or satisfied.
The Plato or bottom, is different for every bag and Wayúu artists are known for not repeating platos. They represent dear aspects of the artist’s life, such as their family, emotions or dreams.
