Peruvian Frazada in Soft Tones
is on back order
This vintage frazada was handmade by artisans in the highlands of Cusco, surrounding Chinhero 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. This is a light to medium weighted one with a very soft feel to its texture. The tones of grey, pinks, orange and ivory are soft and feminine. Would be perfect for a nursery. Each side is different: One side is deeper toned and the other is softer and airier-- for 2 looks. All trimmed in a beautiful ivory stitching.
Measures approximately 64 inches x 49 inches
As with all handmade vintage 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.
