Discover the Kanáas
What's the Kanaas ?
Kanaas are the geometric drawings woven by the Wayuu women. It translates roughly to “the art of weaving drawings”.
These abstract shapes represent their surroundings and daily life. Each one has a specific interpretation, often mystical, magical, or linked to human existence. The more complex the drawing, the greater its value.
Each bag tells a story, describing dreams and hopes.
The mother of all kanaas.
This pattern represents the gift of motherhood or fertility.
