Our Diary | Our Woven Bags, Preserving Ancestral Traditions


Handcrafted by the indigenous Wichi communities in Argentina, our collection of bags are the embodiment of craftsmanship, heritage and sustainability.

The history and cultural significance of Wichi woven bags

Wichi woven bags have a rich history and cultural significance within the Wichi tribe. For centuries, these bags have been an integral part of the communitie's daily life, serving practical purposes such as carrying food, water, and other necessities.

The Chaguar fibre (plant fibre) and woven bags represent more than just artistic skill; they embody the Wichi people's resilience and connection to their ancestral heritage. 

Each bag tells a unique story. The patterns and colours are a reflection of the Wichi communitie's deep connection with nature and their cultural identity, making every bag a work of art.

Passed down through generations, the art of weaving serves as a bridge, transmitting cultural knowledge and preserving the values that define the Wichi way of life.

How are our woven bags made? 
Our collection of woven bags are meticulously crafted using traditional techniques that have been passed down through generations. The process begins with the gathering of the Chaguar plant, which are then prepared for weaving. The leaves are carefully dried and treated to ensure their durability.

Next, the weavers start the intricate process of creating the patterns and designs. The colours are achieved by dyeing the threads with natural pigments derived from plants, barks and leaves.

The weaving process requieres skill, patience and attention to detail. Each bag can take several days or even weeks to complete, depending on its complexity.

Our collection of bags encapsulate the spirit of the Wichi people, telling stories of their history, beliefs and traditions. Every bag honor the connection to their land and their ancestors.
