The closing system for this piece is safe and comfortable. Saga is fully closed when worn as it closes using its straps. It has two inside pockets to help keep your things organized and safe.

We work with Arhuaca gwatis (women) in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. They handcraft the woven part of Saga. It takes them around a month to finish it, as they process the wool completely, from obtaining the fiber, to spinning and weaving.

Each of the woven bases of the Saga bag has a different figure, none is exactly the same as another. These figures represent the Arhuaco cosmogony and the thoughts of each gwati.

The leather part of Saga is is made of thick natural leather. This leather makes the piece more durable and beautiful with time and use.
