SUSU works with the indigenous women of the ethnic Colombian Wayúu group. The beautiful and colorful patterns are handmade by expert knitters using a single string technique. Every knitted pattern has a woman, a family and a real-life story behind it. A standard sized bag takes around 40 hours of work from a knitter. This artisanal process produces the most vibrant patterns and highest quality craftsmanship. The single string technique is the oldest and most authentic Wayúu knitting style. SUSU Accessories promotes a sustainable lifestyle with a Fair Trade philosophy for nearly 350 Wayúu knitters and their families, while forging strong bonds in the communities where we work.
