Bags by Wayúu Tayá Foundation are handmade and for a good cause

Wayúu Tayá Foundation handmade bags have caught our summer lovin' eye. Offered in several different patterns and colors, these bucket bags are the perfect accessory for those warm lazy days ahead. Each hand-woven gem is created by Wayuú indigenous women at Shukumajaya--the Wayúu Tayá Foundation's women center--and it takes them 21 days, 8 hours a day to make each bag! Priced at the totally reasonable cost of $180 (or lower) all proceeds are then returned back to the Wayuú community. We all need a new summer bag.
