Wayuu Bags and Patterns

Wayuu Crochet Patterns


The Wayuu women are incredibly talented at crocheting beautiful designs and patterns. To the Wayuu, the patterns tell the story of their culture and way of life. Wayuu women are taught how to crochet at an early age. By the time a Wayuu girl reaches adulthood, they have mastered crochet techniques  

The Wayuu women spend most of their time crocheting Wayuu bags. A single wayuu bag can take up to a month or more to complete depending on the crochet pattern. All Wayuu bags are unique and one-of-a-kind.

In addition to crocheting, the Wayuu learn how to weave as well. The straps of the Wayuu Mochila Bags are usually braided by hand. Tightly woven, the straps also carry an interesting design that completes the Wayuu mochila bag.

    Hi there,

    I was just in Colombia and fell in love with these bags. I was bound and determined once I returned to Canada to start my search for a pattern to make Mochila’s! Do you have a pattern you might be able to share? I live in the far North West of Canada and think these bags would be adored by many more people. :)
