Luxury and classic mochila bags: clean with a damp cloth the areas that have crystals and leather. The areas with only mochila cloth (usually the back of the bag) can be cleaned with a wet towel and tiny bit of mild soap. Rub the area to be cleaned, rinse the towel with only water, and then clean again the area to remove excess soap from the bag. Air dry.
Native mochila bags: original woven bags with no crystals or leather can be washed by hand or in the washing machine inside a mesh bag. Wash separately just in case the colors bleed. Air dry.
Work of Art
After the bags are handwoven for several weeks by Wayuu Tribe women, we add the leather fringes and then a group single moms add the crystals -one by one- to each individual drawing! Bags can have up to 3.000 crystals! What an amazing work all these these incredible artisans make during the whole process!
