The Arriero use this bag that they call “Carriel”
“A Carriel is a small leather satchel, similar in appearance to a saddlebag, but worn over the shoulder usually by men. Carrieles are either made of rawhide or nutria fur, typical of the Antioquia region of Colombia. This bag is synonymous with paisa culture and commerce and is a beloved symbol of the industriousness and honesty of antioqueños. It is part of folkloric dress of the region and is also used by modern businessmen throughout the country. (Wikipedia)”
