After the sales, we donate part of the proceeds to feed the children of the Tribe and supply other needs they may have. Up to date we have donated over 15.000 meals, several school supplies and a solar panel that provides light to 15 families in their remote villages.

With a background in business, a huge passion for design and a philanthropic heart, she fulfilled her dream of empowering Wayuu Tribe women to fight poverty. Her designs have shown the richness of the Tribe to the world and are sold in different cities all around the world.
LUXCHILAS, which stands for Luxury Mochilas, is the combination of traditional Wayuu handwoven Mochila bags with our trendy concept of Style and Luxury.
We are an emerging and socially conscious brand, that offers unique and limited edition pieces, created by tradition and intervened with our modern luxury touches using crystals and leather fringes.
We work with a group of indigenous women from the Wayuu Tribe, who spend more than an average of 140 hours weaving each mochila bag.
We also support a group of single moms head of their households, that do the embellishment to the mochila bags with leather fringes and crystals.
All the bags are one-of-a-kind so the crystals are carefully placed one by one.
A Luxchila can have up to 3500 crystals!
