Homegrown cotton, spun by hand is a very intricate process. Mama Mochila is encouraging families to return to their roots by purchasing cotton mochilas at a price that reflects time and dedication.

 

Stay tuned for this rare collection of handspun cotton mochilas.

Sacred

Cotton

One of  the most sacred and ancient plants, the Arhuaco community is working to bring back this traditional fiber. Burnt fields during decades of violence and climate change have made cotton shrubs rare.

​​

Mama Mochila recognizes and honors skilled masters,

supports an environmentally conscious economy and unites genders and generations in Arhuaco tradition.
