About us

The 'Mochila Milano by Silvia Ferrari' brand was born from my great love for craftsmanship, for which I have had a passion since childhood.

After having worked for a multinational company for almost 10 years as a luxury accessories buyer in Milan, I returned to this love by starting to attend a loom weaving course which not only refined my skills, but also brought me up to discovering these wonderful bags called 'mochila bags'.
From the beginning I never wanted to just sell them, but to tell their story and for this reason I left and stayed in Colombia for a few months, to get to know the country and the community that created them.
These bags are mainly made by women belonging to an indigenous tribe. Their technique has been handed down for years by the craftswomen to their daughters so that they can all support their community that lives in a very arid area located near the Caribbean.
Spending time with this population, talking to them, I was able to learn a lot about mochilas, an incredible cultural exchange and personal experience that led to the creation of my first collection in 2014.

New accessories

Over time I have expanded the collections to include new mochila models, made exclusively for my brand, and new products, such as some summer hats, baskets, home accessories, such as hammocks, blankets and runners, belts and bracelets, made by other communities located in different countries of South America.
Everything is carefully made following the same policy, in order to guarantee the best quality and aesthetic result of the products, combining these precious traditions with Italian aesthetics and know-how.


With this work I would like to contribute to the support of communities in difficulty and of endangered craftsmanship and to carry forward a message of culture, peace and collaboration between different populations and I would like to invite everyone to do the same thing in their own small way.
I ask you to continue following me to gradually discover all the collaborations that will be revealed...
