Manta Cushion 4891
Handmade Cushions from Vintage Peruvian Mantas, the artisan use mantas to carrying their children. Made entirely by hand from sheep or alpaca 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.
