New Wayuu Bags for Yoga!

March 25, 2017

Yoga Lovers: Yonna – Wayúu brings you the best reason to take your practice everywhere!


Yoga is supposed to be light, healthy, and refreshing, and make you look and feel beautiful. Wouldn’t it be nicer to have Yoga Mat bag that matches your stunning yoga garment while helping the environment and the needy? 


Good news! The guys from Yonna – Wayúu handcrafts figured it out. After successfully bringing to Singapore’s department stores the Wayúu Handbags –handwoven unique and trendsetting beauties-, this Singaporean based and socially engaged start up has taken their designs to the next level: lifestyle functionality. And guess what, their start is the Wayúu yoga mat bags! 


Just like the Wayúu bags, each Wayúu Yoga Mat bag is a unique piece, made in 100% cotton, with meaningful patterns and vibrant colours that will surely resonate with your inner self. Going to your practice had never been so stylish and socially aware!


These customizable Yoga bags are the first of their kind. They are also light, washable and durable. With an affordable starting price of 199 SGD, each bag is a means to help the Wayúu families meet their basic needs, encourage their skills and preserve their own lifestyle. 


It is also a thoughtful way to intertwine two cultures:  the indigenous Wayúu and the Hindu Yoga. 


According to Yonna’s CEO and a craft lover, Santiago Torres, “this is a result of both listening to our costumers’ needs and our drive to innovate from traditional handcrafts while meeting the needs of today’s crowd and preserving the weaving process of the Wayúu.” 


The Wayúu Yoga Mat Bags are selling fast online, so be quick and find them through their website, instagram or facebook profiles. You can also design your own for extra 10% and by choosing colours and any Wayúu design available.


Doing business can be about helping communities, innovating and meeting todays lifestyles.
