WHO MADE THIS PIKA ALPACA BLANKET?

This amazing handcrafted luxury piece of craftsmanship was made by the Awaq Mayki (meaning handwoven in Quechua) weaving cooperative. Boasting over 20 talented and motivated members, Awaq Mayki partnered with Threads of Peru beginning in 2012 as an almost self-organized entity with over a decade registered as a formal association. The majority reside in the community of Upis, situated quite literally at the foot of the great Ausangate mountain, the highest in Southern Peru, and an important Apu (mountain god) in Quechua culture.

Hand-woven Peruvian Bedspread - 100% Alpaca Fiber and Natural Dyes

Size: 180 cm x 210 cm 
Fibre: 100% Alpaca

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Mapacho Master Weaver Alpaca Bedspread was handwoven by the Sonqo family in the high Andean community of Parobamba and is an inspiringly beautiful example of traditional artisanship and mastery from the Mapacho River Valley of Cusco!

The beautiful color combination and intricate designs, carefully woven row by row on a traditional backstrap loom, demonstrate the skill and creativity of local Master Weaver Daniel Sonqo and his family. Over the years, the family has worked to refine the traditional weaving and dyeing techniques that have been passed down generation to generation since before Inca times, creating unique pieces of unsurpassable beauty.

The vibrant colors, hand-dyed using locally-sourced dye materials such as the cochineal insect (reds and purples), ch'illka (greens), and kinsa kunchu (turquoise), are representative of the Parobamba region on the edge of the Cusqueñan tropical rainforest. The pallay (design) features lakes, mountains, flowers, animals and Incan constructions, and showcases a cultural heritage centuries old.

Each Mapacho Master Weaver Alpaca Bedspread is unique, though very similar in design and color combination to those shown here. If desired, please contact our team for specific information and photos about items in stock. When listed as out of stock, this item is also available by custom order.
