Peruvian Frazada in Luz
This vintage frazada was handmade by artisans in the Andean highlands of the Cusco Region of Peru. This frazada's patterns indicate a respect for the forces of nature and the protective quality of sunlight.
Traditional frazadas are woven on a backstrap loom, over the course of 1-3 months. They are made in 2 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. This frazada is soft and extra cozy.
Measures approximately 60 inches x 70 inches
As with all handmade items, there are sometimes "imperfections". These are what make them special, beautiful and real. Truly one of a kind.
- Dry cleaning is recommended.
- Overall, frazadas are hardy and need little care.
- If you wash by hand or in a machine, I recommend using cold water only.
