Arica Herringbone Throw

Description

Our 100% alpaca wool throws are handwoven by a native Aymara women's weaving cooperative in the Atacama desert of northern Chile. Using only the natural wool colors of the alpaca (cream, grey, tan, white and black), each one takes about two weeks to weave on a horizontal pedal loom. The wool is collected from the alpaca, cleaned and washed, then carded and brushed. 

 

The Aymara people of northern Chile inherited their textile practice, techniques and designs from the pre-historic Andean people, passing these traditions down through generations, from grandmothers to mothers to daughters. Your purchase helps support the continuation of these traditions, education and training for the women, and a fair trade working environment.

 

The Arica throw features a middle panel of wide woven herringbone in light grey with contrasting ends of dark grey and cream stripes. All natural alpaca wool colors, no dye. These throws are super soft and cozy and alpaca wool is naturally hypoallergenic.

Read the story behind the throws and a travel guide to the Atacama desert region of northern Chile on the blog.
