Types of Straps at Wayuumarket


Premium wayuu strapPremium woven straps or single-thread (1T).

These straps are among the highest quality straps in the market. Wayuu people call them “Gaza de máquina,” which means strap made by a machine. Even though they do not use a “machine,” they still call them that way because they look so “pristine” in their eyes.

Though, what they use is two metallics tubes as support for them to make a loom. They start weaving using something they call “paleta,” which is a large oval flat piece of wood that helps to tighten the straps and form the pattern.



Traditional straps or double-threads (2T)

“Fajon” is the name that Wayuu people call this type of strap. Specifically, Wayuu artisans weave them using a double thread; the process is long and tiresome. They begin by defining the colors of the pattern to spin the thread. To do this, you need at least three people: one person is in charge of the “máquina,” the other holds the spinning machine, and the third one goes back and forth with the strands.

This machine, as they call it, is a fan, and it helps to spin the thread, but while the fan is running, another person has to keep walking for around a 300-meter perimeter. They use forks to hold the yarn. Usually, only men weave double thread straps since to create them since you need strong hands to maneuver the materials.
