This one-of-a-kind Frazada has been handwoven by women in a small remote village of the High Andes in Peru. Using techniques that have been passed down through generations since the pre-Columbian times, weavers use locally sourced sheep’s wool and natural dyes to weave together two narrow panels on a backstrap loom. They sew these panels together to create the frazada. Each piece takes about a month to complete.
Frazadas are traditionally used as blankets, and artisans in this region often can be seen wearing them wrapped around their bodies for warmth in the chill of the Andean mountains. We love that they are thick, sturdy and versatile pieces that can be used as bed coverings, rugs, throws, or even as upholstery. Their durability makes these pieces pet and kid friendly.
This frazada is approximately 30 1/2" x 46".
Our frazada collection is comprised of authentic and high quality representatives of Andean craft sourced by hand in the villages of Peru. These textiles are handwoven using 100% sheep’s wool and natural dyes. Due to their handmade nature, minor imperfections and color variations may be visible. These details speak to the handmade process and tell the story of its creator. No two frazadas are exactly the same.
All of our textiles are handcrafted using the finest natural materials. We recommend a light vacuum or warm iron for general upkeep. Please avoid direct or prolonged sunlight exposure. Professional dry cleaning recommended.
