Perfect Handmade Wedding Gift - 100% Alpaca Fiber and Natural Dyes

Size: 40 cm x 210 cm 

Fiber: 100% Alpaca

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Munay Wedding Table Runner is the perfect wedding gift! These finely woven table runners feature traditional iconography symbolizing love and union, bringing the warmth of Andean history and love to any newlywed’s home.

The dusty rose shade is made from naturally dyeing with the cochineal insect, once more valuable than gold, and the soft cream is natural, un-dyed alpaca wool, locally sourced from the rolling mountains of the Cusco region. 

As in many cultures across the globe and throughout the centuries, textiles play an important part in  traditional wedding rituals in the Andes. Not only are special garments prepared, sometimes months in advance, to adorn the bridal party; but textiles are also used as a form of dowry and a testimony to the bride-to-be’s weaving ability. In the Andes, special woven patterns and emblems have been developed to represent the loving union.

Handwoven Peruvian Table Runner – 100% Naturally Dyed Baby Alpaca

Size: 40 cm x 210 cm

Fiber: 100% Baby Alpaca 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Parobamba Master Weaver Table Runner 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 combinations and intricate designs, carefully woven row by row on a traditional backstrap loom, illustrate 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 from generation to generation since before Incan 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, showcasing a cultural heritage centuries old.

Hand-woven Peruvian Table Runner - 100% Baby Alpaca

Size: 40 cm x 210 cm

Fiber: 100% Baby Alpaca

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Pitusiray Master Table Runner is one of the finest examples of Quechua weaving in the Cusco region and will deliver the perfect touch of Latin American panache to your bedroom or dining room!

Woven by featured Master Weaver, Angela Milo Huallpa, from the high Andean community of Totora, the rich earth tones of this luxurious baby alpaca table runner come from the naturally occurring range of un-dyed alpaca fiber. The pallay (designs) of each runner are slightly different, reflecting the ever-changing inspirations of weaving, reflecting the natural environment, family stories, and the emotions of the weaver while working.

The Pitusiray Master Table Runner is a credit to the incomparable skill Angela has acquired through decades of practice. Her hand-spun yarn is actually considered to be as fine as machine spun! Carmen, her young daughter, is enthusiastically following in her mother's footsteps, already spinning and weaving awe-inspiring textiles of her own.

Master Weaver Collection: Traditional Handwoven Peruvian Manta – 100% Naturally Dyed Alpaca

Size: 80 cm x 80 cm (approx.)

Fibre: 100% Alpaca

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Daniel Master Weaver Peruvian Manta brings an exclusive opportunity to collect a masterpiece by the celebrated weaver, Daniel Sonqo!

Called lliqlla in Quechua, a manta is a traditional carrying cloth, used to carry a variety of items – from potatoes to firewood, to plants harvested for dyeing, and even babies! The greatest heights of artistic expression and technical accomplishment are showcased when weaving mantas, as this is the last stage of a weaver’s education.

Peruvian Mantas are traditionally worn over the shoulder by women, covering the back. They are first folded on the diagonal and joined by two corners under the chin with a large pin (traditionally called a tupu).

A true collector’s item, this piece will evoke the mystique of the ancient Incan empire. When listed as out of stock, the Daniel Master Weaver Peruvian Manta is also available by custom order.
