Steal of the Month in September Vogue, you can now find these unique handmade Wayuu Susu Bags at www.lullilu.com, Ronit Zilkha’s new gem of a website. Worn by celebrities and snapped up as fast as they hit the shelves across the pond, these bags are totally covetable.
Each Wayuu bag is totally individual, made entirely by hand and taking approximately 21 days to create. When you buy one you do so in the knowledge that you are helping the Wayuu Taya foundation to improve the lives of their community and at the same time help them to maintain their traditions and cultures.
Each bag is different, so don’t expect your favourite to still be there if you leave it too long to purchase. There will almost certainly be a different colourway but it will never be exactly the same. These bags make wonderful gifts as well.
Current colourways include chocolate and pink, red and natural and red, black and white and they all have the Wayuu Taya Foundation logo with the individual bag number stamped on it. They have tassled ties and long colourful straps which you can wear cross-body or over your shoulder and each measures approximately 15” high by 16” deep so they’ll carry just about everything, including your iPad. www.lullilu.com won’t have dozens of these waiting to be bought as they’re quite a rarity, so make sure you snap yours up fast………….They retail for £145 each.
