Exclusively designed for AALUNA 100% handweaved by Wayuu artisans from North Colombia

Escama, meaning “fish scales” in Spanish, pays tribute to the fishing culture of the Wayuu people. Change in climate has changed lands, leaving them with arid terrain and with difficult access to water. However, many stories and legends are still carried through the fishing culture of these communities. Every bag tells a story: as a personal expression of the artist, each bag also comes with an original drawing on the bottom. As your new favorite accessory, the handcrafted Escama bag also offers useful daily functions. Each bag features an interior pocket for stashing your phone, keys, and other items. A long woven shoulder strap allows for comfortable long-term wear. An ample strap length means that this piece also doubles as a crossbody bag. Treasure your bag for years to come with this durable, washable design. Seamless design made with durable acrylic fibers

Designed for AALUNA

Each piece in this collection is exclusively designed for AALUNA and handwoven with love and attention by master artisans from the Wayuu tribe of la Guajira, Colombia.
These artisans weave each bag or mochila, in a single seamless piece, using traditional weaving and crochet techniques. Therefore, there may be slight variations in size from piece to piece.
By purchasing a handmade bag from this collection, you support an ethical business model that promotes South American artistic craftsmanship and preserves ancestral know-how.
On behalf of AALUNA and the Wayuu artisans who work with us, thank you for your purchase.
