Peruvian Frazada in Sunshine & Rainbows

Sale price Price $200.00 Regular price

READY TO SHIP END OF AUGUST 2019.

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 61 inches x 55 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. 

    Care Instructions:

    • Dry cleaning is recommended.
    • Overall, frazadas are hardy and need little care.
