Sheep Wool Bag, Woven, natural dyed. Indigenous Made by Arhuaco Women of Colombia

Regular price $139.00 CAD Sale

These Arhuaco Bags come from the Arhuaco tribe of the Colombian region of the Sierra Nevada. These bags are a traditional prayer for the men and women of the tribe, made with 100% local wool harvested from animals they raise themselves and dyed with local natural plants. Each bag is woven with great care and it takes an artisan 4 - 6 months to finish a single bag (depending on size and design). These are eco-friendly and will last forever; making it a great investment. 

 

Every bag is unique and its design reflects Indigenous beliefs and customs, depicting themes of nature such as rivers, mountains, and animals, all of which are revered by the Arhuaco People. These bags are an ancient tradition and all of them represent Mother Earth. The colors with which the mochilas are woven are earth tones, ranging from brown and beige to black and gray. The bags usually carry indigenous drawings or representations of animals and other objects of their cosmology.

 

In the Arhuaca culture, only the women weave, and the men are dedicated to agriculture. They start weaving at the age of 4 years old in order not to lose the culture.
