The Wayuu way of life
Every Piyulu bag is handmade by Wayuu people. The name of the bag is unique as it is being represented as one of the family members from who's making it. Therefor we gave our bags the names of who they represent. Therefor every single bag is unique in many ways.
Together with the Wayuu we guarantee the highest quality since they have different types of weaving. In Piyulu bags they use 1 string which makes sure the bag is stronger and the colors are more visible.
The Wayuu tribe lives far away from modern society where there is no electricity, nor machines to help them create these little wonders.
These mochilas are their main source of income to cover food, water and clothes for their families.
Thanks to your purchases these families can live on and create these amazing products for us in Europe.
