Product Description

Details

Product Code: COR013

These beautifully soft alpaca cushion covers have been woven for us in a small family-run workshop in the far north of Chile. The workshop was set up with the help of a small Chilean charity in an effort to provide families with a stable source of income which allows them to remain in their home village, rather than migrate to the ciites in search of work.

Woven in natural fleece colours, the simple fold-over design can be used with either a rectangular or square cushion pad. There is no fastening.

The stitching used to join the cover is based on a traditional Aymara stitch for sewing together narrow lengths of woven cloth, such as on an "aguayo", or cloth used for carrying babies on their backs.

Dimensions: 45 x 45cm

Composition: 100% alpaca fibre

Cushion pad not included

Dry clean only

By purchasing this cushion pad you will be helping to support a rural family in northern Chile, and are contributing to the survival of an ancient textile tradition.
Here at añañuca we work closely with a Chilean fair trade organisation that provides support and training opportunities to marginalised rural women, helping them to continue to live and provide for their families within their home community, rather than having to travel to the cities in search of employment.
