Meet our newest bags, the Apuni Mochila!
Apuni means "three" in the Wayuu language, chosen to represent the three colors in each bag. Though many are of the tan, black, and pop color variety (hellooo hot pink!) others versions range from tonals to brights - but always a trio and always striking.
Just like the rest of our Mochilas, the Apuni's are one-of-a-kind, handwoven by women of the Wayuu tribe. It takes our artisan partner, Griselda, and her sister 15-20 days to finish one bag. Talk about special order!
These beauties just launched last night! And I can just image all the ways you'll work one into your summer wardrobe. The punchy colors are perfect for poolside, roomy enough for a beach tote, a festival fashionista favorite and a solid vacay companion because of it's lightweight, easy to travel size and shape. (Fold or slightly squish one up in your suitcase and it comes right back to life on arrival!)
These bags are currently listed as pre-orders because they'll be in route from Colombia to the USA later next week. I'm personally hand carrying them back (along with a few other new goodies) especially for you! ;)
