Frazadas

Frazadas, known as blankets in the High Andes of Peru, have multiple historical meanings behind them. They can be used in a number of ways in any space, from rugs, blankets and throws to table decorations or even wall hangings - just let your imagination run wild!

Made entirely by hand from sheep or llama wool, these fascinating items are coloured using only natural dyes that come from animal or vegetable properties that are native to the region. Cochineal, for example, from which the natural dye carmine is derived, produces a spectrum of colours from intense red to pastel pinks. Many other natural products are used to produce a multitude of gorgeous colours from Peru’s native purple corn and muña plant to Pacific Sea Salt.
