The Wayuu Taya handmade sling-back purses are a great way to be stylish while contributing to charity.

The Wayuu Taya bags are actually handmade by the women of the Wayuu community, which is located in Guajira Peninsula, South America. The bags, which take about 22 days to create, are sold online through the Wayuu Taya Foundation and Bona Drag websites. The bags may be a bit pricey, but a portion of the proceeds go towards the protection of Indigenous Latin American communities.

These bags are also a great find for any summer-loving fashionista as they are bright and colorful. Also, they are made of a versatile fabric which can easily fit larger items and be washed if it gets dirty. The Wayuu Taya bags are a great design, for both fashion and social good.
