La Mochila VERDI
Our Handbags are woven expressions that celebrate the essence of Colombia, its cultural diversity and traditional workmanship.
By reinventing Colombia’s ethnical mochilas into modern bucket bags, unique wristlets and other sophisticated silhouettes, VERDI preserves the original shape and name but re-thinks the technique and materials. At our workshop, we use plantain fiber, organic silk, fishing line, leather and silver-plated metals to craft bags that, taking up to 10 days to be knitted by hand or hand-woven on looms, are testaments to quality and luxury.
Elegantly shaped by master weavers whose expertise is the result of generations of practice, patience and consistency, each piece takes up to 10 days to be completed. Copper and silver-plated threads are handcrafted into a unique metallic handbag and further enhanced with finely sourced details.
