Get close to our roots and inspiration
Our journey started with theThe Wayúu tribe. One of the biggest indigenous tribes that inhabit the peninsula of the Guajira, in Colombia; This community of matriarchal structure is located in front of the Caribbean Sea. Their bags are the ultimate expression of the Wayúu handcraft. Was here where we found the inspiration for our brand, even our name comes from word Kale Kale that means Parakeets in wayuunaiki language.
Their bags have become famous by their colors and designs around the world. The "Mochilas" (how they are known) are made in crochet, a technique introduced by Catholic missionaries at the beginning of the 20th century. But this was only our starting point, as our objective was to travel the country in search for the all the beautiful handcraft work watered in the different tribes and local craftsmen in Colombia.
