The Lightning Bag (small)
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.
100% Cotton , 100% Leather.

Colville is a brand with a passion for innovation and the unexpected, and for expressing the feelings and values of contemporary women. Established in 2018 by molly molloy (previously design director at marni) and lucinda chambers (previously fashion director of british vogue), colville’s collections are romantic and bold, adventurous, engaged, and uplifting
From the start, colville’s ethos has been collaborative and inclusive: we work with women’s social projects from dakar to colombia to morocco. We are committed to the development of sustainability and to re-purposing: from the start we have re-purposed and re-conditioned clothes and accessories. And we love crafts and the skills of making, and we value the people who use them to contribute to the world, whether they are the artisans who are producing our clothes and accessories, or the artists we collaborate with, or the many customers and followers who participate in our open projects.
