This crossbody mochila, designed exclusively by MARIYA, is an edited version of the traditional Wayuu Mochila. The base features an Evil Eye - a symbol that in Turkey has deep meaning throughout the culture. The Evil Eye pendant is affixed to anything that is perceived to attract greed, envy, or ill-will. The strong and durable crocheted bucket bag becomes even softer with each use.
MARIYA Wayuu mochila bucketbags are 100% handmade by the indigenous Wayuu women artisans of La Guajira, Colombia, the only group of artisans in the world who crochet in this style. The single-thread mochilas take between 18-20 days for one woman to create, a craft that takes years to perfect.
Strap Drop: Approx. 20"
