Each Illariy Scarf features designs like jungle fruit, frogs, fish, spiders, Inca steps and lakes. This combination of designs represents the natural world around the weaver, which provides daily inspiration.

The beautiful color combinations and intricate designs, carefully woven row by row on a traditional back strap loom, exemplify the skill and creativity of local Master Weaver Daniel Sonqo and his family.

This Fair Trade scarf was purchased directly from the artisan.

100% Baby Alpaca Toque Chullo Hat – Woven by Hand in Peru

Size: 58 cm diameter (approx)

Fibre: 100% Baby Alpaca

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Ocongate Baby Alpaca toque chullo hats, knit by hand in sumptuously soft baby alpaca, are true treasures from Andean history!

Known as chullos (pronounced chul-yoh) in Quechua, these alpaca hats were first made thousands of years ago out of necessity: temperatures in the high Andes often fall below freezing, with biting winds that freezes your ears! Hence, the ear flaps to give your ears special protection. 

WHO MADE THIS BABY ALPACA CHULLO HAT?

Each Ocongate Baby Alpaca Toque Chullo Hat is made by an indigenous artisan in the high Andean community of Pitukiska, in the Mapacho River Valley, with hand-spun baby alpaca fibre from free-range alpaca herds and natural dye materials. As each chullo is hand-made, each one is unique and colours and designs may not be exactly as in the photo.

In the Andes, special woven patterns and emblems have been developed to represent the loving union.
