Spotted in SOHO: colorful mochilas

Californication Mochila via Weavers of the World, $130

I was walking to brunch in SOHO with my sister and cousin and spotted these beautiful hand woven bags. We were really hot so I just grabbed a card and we rushed off to air conditioning. 

These bags are by a company called Weavers of the World and each bag, called a mochila (it means backpack in Spanish), is hand woven by the Wayuu Women in La Guajira, Columbia. Each mochila takes three weeks to make. 

I love these bags so much! They each have a really tasteful color scheme that is both minimal and fun. Check out their full selection of colorful mochilas next time you are looking for a fun bag or backpack.
