From our latest collection, we are thrilled to introduce our “Bolero” bucket bags. A sophisticated and playful approach to the traditional Wayuu Mochila. Woven by hand by our team of artisans in Venezuela, our Bolero bucket bags take between 8-10 days to make. The first step to create this meticulous design is to weave the bucket bag silhouette. The next step is to weave and to attach each of the intricate ruffles. The final step is to attach the drawstring and strap. It’s slouchy and crochet silhouette makes this bag easy to fold and pack. Its strap adapts to the amount of weight put in the bag. Throw it over your shoulder and wear it as your everyday bag or on your next beach vacation.
Strap: (stretches) 64cm/25inches
All of our products are 100% handmade, please treat with love and care. If you have any questions on how to care for your SH products, please reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
