Wayra Change Purse

$18.00

Hand-woven Peruvian Change Purse - 100% Naturally Dyed Wool

Size:  9 cm x 12 cm

Fibre: 100% Natural Wool; cotton lining; zipper closure 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Wayra Change Purse is a stylish and unique way of storing your pocket change!

Wayra means "wind" in Quechua. This unique Andean-style change purse in 5 fashionable color combinations was woven on a traditional back-strap loom by indigenous artisans from various Quechua communities in the Cusco region. The weaver created the ancient designs by carefully selecting each thread, row by row.

The materials in this change purse are 100% natural – locally sourced sheep's wool, hand-spun on a drop-spindle, and dyed with natural dyes. This product is finished with cotton lining and a zipper closure.

WHO MADE THIS WAYRA CHANGE PURSE?

The fabric for the Wayra change purse was handwoven by the weavers of Munay Urpi in Huaran, in the heart of the Sacred Valley. The change purse was then sewn up by husband-and-wife team Armando & Josefina from Chinchero.

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.

"Dart Frogs" Felted Frog Toys

$11.99

100% Natural Wool Dart Frog – Fair Trade Eco-Friendly Kid’s Felted Frog Toys

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Felted Dart Frog is an adorable item for home decoration or a sweet child’s gift! These hand-made, 100% natural felted frog toys are super cheerful and fun. Felt Dart Frog Toys are made by dry needle felting, a technique that transforms un-spun wool into sculptured creations, such as animals or birds. The pure 100% wool has an outer layer of scales giving its strands a jagged edge. This allows the fibers to become entangled when a barbed needle is repeatedly inserted into the ball of un-spun wool.

Small:  5.5cm
Large: 9cm

WHO MADE It?

The Felted Dart Frog Toys are produced by the Spectacled Bear Conservation Society, a Threads of Peru partner NGO that works to ensure the conservation of the Spectacled Bear and also to support indigenous artisan weavers (pictured) Each Dart Frog is hand-made by indigenous artisans from communities in the “Rio de la Leche” watershed in northwestern Peru, an area with high unemployment, extreme poverty and where SBC conducts its research and conservation programs.

Important notes when ordering this Felt Dart Frog.

Note: As these felted frog toys are made by hand, sizes may vary.

Please specify which color you would like by sending an email to contact@threadsofperu.com after the checkout.  We can't guarantee any color but we will do our best.
