These were hand woven by our friends Fillipe and Hilaria of the Cusco region of Peru. This family has been passed down the techniques of traditional Andean weaving through many generations. They raise the alpaca and gather plants from their land and region to dye the wool with natural dyes. They then weave the wool by hand into these beautiful pieces that depict deep cultural symbology including: cocoa, Apu (Spirit of the mountains), and picaflor (hummingbird), eyes of the river, and more...
One of A kind.
