Mochilla bags, beauty, culture and purpose

May 20, 2011


I’m two days from spending time with my niece and brother at the beach! We live about 25 minutes from the perfect scent that is the ocean and at this point I’m just here for the smile and screams my niece will perform as she will ab-so-lutely lose it at the beach. We’re all water babies in this family. Enough of us, LOOK AT THESE BAGS! Mochila bags are such a staple of summer, I get so excited every time I see one, whether in a fashion spread, some hippie mother buying produce for her ilk at our market at the beach (they have the best peanut butter/choco smoothie this side of the WORLD) or online. I found this first and third amazing pic via Oracle Fox. There I learned that these bags are made by Wayuu Tribeswomen as a way to support themselves and that they can take up to 40 hours to make. 40 hours!
If you wish to purchase one of these great works you can do so here or at Free People (second pic)
