Handmade backpack in natural leather with a woolen base handwoven by women from the Iku indigenous community in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.

Description

Handmade backpack in natural leather with a woolen base handwoven by women from the Iku indigenous community in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Each Saga is special. None is exactly like the other as the woven symbol represents the thought of each craftswoman, where they depict both their creativity and fragments of their culture’s worldview.

  • It has adjustable straps and is the perfect size to carry up to a 13-inch laptop.
  • Saga has two simple inside pockets.

If you wish to choose the symbol on your Saga, and depending on availability, feel free to get in touch with us once you complete your purchase. You can then choose the figure you like for your Saga and learn more about its story, symbolism, and the person who wove it.

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.
