Aymara Weave Alpaca Cushion

Product Code: COR020

These beautifully understated alpaca cushion covers have been woven for us by Isabel Challapa in the north of Chile. Using only the natural fleece colours selected from her own herd of alpacas, Isabel weaves on a traditional aymara four-stake loom. This style of weaving was traditionally used to create the densely woven cloth used for grain sacks.

Dimensions: 45 x 45cm

Cushion cover: 

100% alpaca wool

Cushion pad:

100% cotton cover with duck feather filling 

Dry clean only

By purchasing this cushion 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.
