About AALUNA

We aim to celebrate indigenous Colombian craftsmanship. We design accessories that are handmade by local Wayuu tribes in order to support their craft and sustain local communities.

To meet the needs of modern customers, AALUNA accessories are carefully designed for aesthetic appearance and practical use. Each year, we create “ethical chic” collections, with modern and urban looks, while providing fair treatment and pay to our artisans.

AALUNA 100% Handmade Wayuu Woven Handbags

About our craftsmanship

AALUNA works with Wayuu tribes to offer uniquely chic handbags.

We focus our production on Wayuu handbags. These handbags are called “mochilas”.

Their distinct style can be recognized by their geometrical drawings and the specific weaving techniques used by Wayuu artisans.

AALUNA only works with the most skilled craftspeople, who use ancestrally refined techniques and the best materials for their creations.

Consequently, each handmade mochila takes time to be woven. On average, a medium-sized handbag takes 3-4 weeks to be produced. Because all of our pieces are 100% handmade, each one is unique.
