Peruvian Vintage Frazada Pillow, Huacho
A frazada is a Peruvian textile that can be traced back to the Incan people. Although modern technology has changed the way today's frazada is crafted, this collection is a true vintage piece. 100 years ago in the Andes mountains, artisans still used the same technique as they have for centuries, starting with the finest grade wool. The wool is dyed with organic vegetable colors & is hand-spun using a back-strap loom into beautiful freehand patterns. The backside of the pillow cover is a thick solid grey wool . Your frazada will is a timeless treasure + supports the preservation of this beautiful tradition. Dry clean only. Pillow cover only, insert not included. *This special collection is possible because we were able to find a "lot" of perfectly preserved Frazada textiles which we then carefully repurposed into pillows- we LOVE them and we hope you do as too!
