For the Kankuamo people the Fique bags are culturally important traditions and integral to their way of life. The mochilas reflect the origin of life and pay homage to the snowy mountains they call home. The patterns you see (sometimes) on the bags, reflect the animals that live in la Sierra Nevada, as well as the sun which provides the energy for plants to grow. Also interesting to know, the fique mochilas were also used as currency. The Kankuamo would trade the mochila with other tribes who live in the Sierra Nevada, in exchange for food, textiles, and other goods.
Every bag is unique and handmade with love.
