One of many incredible frazadas in a new batch we are offering here online. These textiles are vintage, ranging from 20 to 50 years old- they have been made since pre-hispanic times. It is their age that creates such beautiful depth of color. They come from the Andean region and are handwoven by the women there to protect against the cold. Frazadas are wonderful used as rugs, throws or blankets and they look fantastic in all types if interiors. Any imperfections in these textiles are part of their handmade and vintage quality- this is part of their beauty.
This one has a beautiful pattern along two edges - the work is incredible! It also has beautiful depth of color- hot pinks, soft pinks, soft ocean blue... with deep orange and brownish reds. It has varying colored stitching down the middle - which is so fun!
