The Lightning Bag (small)



Choose a variety


Our small lightening cylinder bag is woven by the wayuu tribeswomen of northern colombia following a craft technique that stems back to the spanish missionaries who came to america during the colonial period. This weaving method carries a great deal of meaning and evinces a sense of heritage, spirituality and community. It plays a vital role in supporting the local economy by providing a sustainable income for families. The zig-zag design, rendered here in yellow, red and khaki green reflects joy and a deep-felt connection to the land. The bag is assembled in our specialised italian atelier and is finessed with a robust top handle in black leather as well as a detachable cross-body strap in dark brown leather. All the leather used on this bag is metal-free and sustainably produced to minimise environmental damage.
