Washein was founded by Claudia – Nazareth’s hospital director. Her aim is to introduce people around the world with the most beautiful crafts from the native Wayúu tribe of Colombia. The artisans are involved in all the process, from dying the straw filaments, to carefully weaving the hats and bags and finally trimming and cleaning them. The pompons that decorate them are weaved by a group of Wayúu women from a different community, that live in Riohacha, the capital of La Guajira.

Wayúu Straw Bags are easy to clean. Wipe down the bag with a soft, lint-free, tightly-woven cloth (to prevent catching or snagging). You may also try a moist facial or baby wipe. Should a stray piece of straw pop up on the crown or brim, do not pull it — simply snip it off with a nail clipper or a pair of small scissors.
