The Wayuu crochet technique involves the use of a needle to wrap around a set of threats. Single or double threat. The Wayuu women spend most of their time weaving “ mochila” handbags using their traditional techniques and patterns. The artisans learned to weave since they are young, passing their ancestral traditions from generation to generation.
