Wayuu Market Acrylic Thread Color Charts

Wayuu Market Acrylic Thread Color Charts

One could say that 80% of Wayuu artisan crafts made in La Guajira, Colombia, contain acrylic fiber or are made entirely of acrylic material.

For the region, acrylic offers the most sustainability thanks to its resistance, and for maintaining a vibrant color that does not bleed.

The Wayuu, and generally everybody in the region has to deal with the abrasive heat, the sunrays, sand, etc.  Cotton items won't be able to withstand the conditions.

Thanks to the durability acrylic fibers have to offer, Wayuu bags or mochila bags are machine washable and can last a very long time.

Besides, we get to enjoy a wide variety of vibrant colors that help to highlight the patterns each weaver creates.
