If you love handmade unique pieces then this beautiful clutch is for you. Crafted by indigenous artisans of the Wayuu Tribe in Colombia, this bag recreates with intricate patterns the life and beliefs of this culture.
Each bag is created in the punch needle embroidery technique with precision and durability by a single member of the community.
The creation and meaning of each envelope have been passed through many generations. The symbolism behind their weaved patterns and forms along with the intentions of each artisan while marking each bag make these small bags a wearable work of art and culture. This clutch is versatile, fashionable, trendy and great for any occasion.
We travel and work directly with a small group of entrepreneur indigenous women head of household who craft these bags. It is heritage, life style and economic fulfillment for this community.
Part of Isasuma’s mission is to support and empower small and at risk communities such as the Wayuu Tribe. The lack of governmental support and a harsh deserted environment make these bags probably their only sustainable economic way out of deadly hunger and thirst.
