23 Jun Think x Wayuu Bags
Today I show you a piece of Wayuu art, the perfect example of what I call “pure eye candy”. I am talking about the Wayuu mochilla bag that is hanging around my shoulders. This bag has been knitted by the Wayuu Indian Tribe in Colombia that is celebrated for its colorful and cultural bags and have been producing these accessories for many generations. The Wayuu people are known as the people of the sun, sand and wind and design these items accordingly. These bags are all handmade and distinctive because of their different colors, refinement and knit-technique. Each bag is therefore unique and that alone already makes my heart beats faster.
The Wayuu bag has become a true fashion statement and you see many women carrying such a bag. You can see a lot of variations in the different designs: plain and simple, but also more enhanced and pimped ones. Like this Think X Wayuu Pavo Real Bag. As explained, the Wayuu people create these bags according to the natural elements that surround this tribe, including animals, stars and plants, all in bright colors. This item has been embellished by Think Imaginary with sequins, feathers and a peacock. This shiny bird is not only an animal with fashionable colors, the pavo is also symbolic for immortality, beauty and dignity. Do you already understand why this shoulderbag made me dance in the middle of a meadowland at sunset?
Because this bag is kind of noticeable, I decided to wear a plain white dress, blue slip-ons and subtle accessories. But, to really complete this look I also decorated myself with the popular flash tattoos that are totally on trend. I love these golden, silver and black symbols and just wanted to apply more and more. What do you think of these emblems? You will definitely see me wearing these tattoos to a festival, day at the beach or during my holidays.
