This one-of-a-kind hand crafted rug will enhance any room in your home. It can be used as a rug, throw, blanket or wall hanging and  it also makes the perfect picnic blanket. This one is a very thick weave and substantial piece. It is a beautiful mix of warm pink, orange and purple tones. It would be a stunning addition to any room in your home.  

Our frazadas are made from 100% naturally dyed sheep or llama wool. This wool has previously been spun on a drop spindle, before being handwoven, following centuries old traditional methods passed down through generations, using an Andean backstrap loom. Each piece is just under a metre wide so a signature feature of the rugs is the central seam that joins the two textile pieces. This is very skilfully integrated into the design, and is a stamp of authenticity.

We source all our rugs from small mountain villages in the Peruvian Andes, ensuring a fair price is paid to each artisan who will spend several weeks making it. Each design is inspired by the makers natural surroundings. The Andean people have a very close relationship with nature and the beauty and simplicity of their Cosmovision is reflected in everything they do.

In our ever-changing global world it is common for artisan craft to be undervalued, purchasing a genuine piece of textile art helps maintain these ancient traditions thriving.

Due to the handmade process, each piece may have slight imperfections thus creating a truly unique and ultimately authentic item. It's always a joy to discover the originality and peculiarity of each individual piece!!
