I love walking into shops and finding colorful new treasures, just like this beautiful bag that I found the other day at Calypso, East Hampton.
I new that I had to get it as soon as I saw it. When I walked over to have a closer look, I discovered that it was handwoven by women from the Wayuu Taya community, an indigenous group, also referred to as Guajiros, living in the Guajiran Peninsula located between Venezuela and Colombia. Proceeds from the sale of the bags, or "Susu"in Wayuunaiki, go the The Wayuu Taya Foundation, an NGO dedicated to helping improve the lives of the Wayuu people. This Susu is today's love because it's gorgeously made for a good cause.
