Escama Handcarry Bucket Bag Purse in Black / White


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. Each Escama handbag features a round woven body in this distinctive geometric pattern, as well as matching tassel accents and gold metallic details.
