Peruvian Frazada in Autumn
This frazada was handmade by artisans in the Andean highlands surrounding Chinchero Peru. Traditional frazadas like this one are colored with natural plant dyes and are woven, over the course of 1-3 months, on a backstrap loom. They are made in 2 narrow panels that are then stitched together to form the frazada. All natural, made with sheep's and alpaca wool, they are thick and made for warmth and durability in order to protect from the chill of the Andes. Each one is unique and reflective of its maker/weaver.
Measures approximately 56 inches x 59 inches
As with all handmade items, there are sometimes "imperfections". These are what make them special, beautiful and real. Truly one of a kind. This particular frazada has one panel that is 3 inches longer than the other panel. The shorter panel is 66 inches long.
- Dry cleaning is recommended.
- Overall, frazadas are hardy and need little care.
