Looking to add some pop to your summer ensemble? Check out these woven cross-body bags made by the women of Wayuu and distributed by the Wayuu Taya Foundation. The Wayuu community – located in the Guajira region between Venezuela and Colombia – is being threatened with urban migration, and 65% of the proceeds from the sales of these gypset-style bags goes to funding health service, child care and educational programs for the community. Check out Katy Perry toting her own version around at Coachella! While the price tag may seem a bit steep at $140 per bag, it’s important to know that each bag is handmade and takes one Wayuu woman over 160 hours to complete. Not only are the bohemian satchels totally adorable, but they’re functional too! You can fit everything you need in there to take you from day to night. Pick one up for yourself right here.
