This cushion has been made from a "blanket", in an artisanal way by Aimara women from the Altiplano of Peru and Bolivia, according to local traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation.
The colors and patterns on the "blankets" have indigenous meanings, and take weeks to weave. They weave on portable wooden looms made in their community and it is common to see them weaving while tending livestock.
These products are created in remote villages, with enough time and patience, unusual conditions in our society.
Some decorators include them within the current trends of "slow life", or "wabisabi" decoration, since they may contain imperfections typical of manual work that give them greater authenticity and character.
We travel to the Altiplano to work directly with local artisans, paying a fair price that allows the development of local communities while maintaining their traditions and culture.
They are ideal for bringing color and joy to bedrooms or living rooms. They can be easily combined with our rugs to create unique and bright environments.
