Make your statement – fair, ethical, eco-friendly.

The Tawa pillow is a statement piece that says "I care" - about good design, and about people.

Handwoven in fine alpaca fiber, the Tawa throw pillow marries modern design with ancient tradition. This decorative pillow looks great as a modern accent piece in any home, but you'll know its real value: helping to empower women and keep ancient traditions alive.

The name Tawa comes from the Quechua word for the Incan Empire, the Tawantinsuyu. It also literally means “4”! The Peruvian textile is woven using the discontinuous warp and weft weaving technique, one of the most challenging and threatened techniques in the Andes today.

Go for the whole boho look and mix-and-match the Tawa alpaca pillow with our other handwoven artisan pillows, like the Upis, Picchu or Pallay pillows!

Note: Excludes cushion insert. Visit our friends at Pillow Cubes for a fantastic selection of eco-friendly, recycled pillow inserts. Ask us for your exclusive coupon code to receive 10% off!
