Growing up in Colombia gave Catalina the opportunity to witness a culture passed down from generation. The handmade mochilas, or sack-like handbags, inspired her to create different products with the woven patterns and straps she had become accustomed to seeing.
Catalina Straps & Bags creates unique products to carry your yoga mat, water bottle, guitar, and more. Each product is handmade by the indigenous artisans of the Wayuu tribe in Colombia. To make a positive social and environmental impact, a percentage of each purchase goes back to the makers and their community, as well as investing in tree planting.
