Mama Mochila strengthens Arhuaco families, culture and tradition through the ethical sale of handmade, environmentally sustainable Arhuaco craft.
We support Indigenous Arhuaco artisans in accessing the global market, developing new products and preserving Arhuaco craft heritage.
Our model emphasizes gender and generational inclusion, use of earth conscious materials, traditional techniques and artistic creativity.
Nearly all Mama Mochila artisans live as homesteaders, growing their own food in remote mountains and caring for large families.
Our goal is to sustain a living and practicing Arhuaco culture by offering income opportunities that do not require abandonment of the traditional Arhuaco lifestyle.
