Description

Talataa is the Wayúu word for happiness. This beautiful bag is a reflection of the artist’s mood when she was weaving it. The bright colors give us a sneak peek into her world. We can rightly assume that she was feeling positive about her life during during weaving.

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.
