This stunning vintage frazada was handmade by artisans in the highlands of Cusco, Peru. Traditional frazadas like this one are colored with natural plant dyes and are woven, over the course of 1 month, 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 to be warm in order to protect from the chill of the Andes. Each one is unique and reflective of its maker/weaver. Blue tones like these are rare finds in frazadas. This goreous turquoise blue is made using the flower of Andean potatos.
Measures approximately 57 inches x 66 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.
- Drycleaning is recommended.
- Overall, frazadas are hardy and need little care.
