Add some modern boho flair to your home decor with this handwoven frazada wool pillow in Cream & Coal. Hugely popular right now, this frazada wool pillow was handwoven on a traditional backstrap loom using thick, handspun wool yarn, creating a richly textured pillow reminiscent of the thick rugs and blankets, or Peruvian frazadas, this region is known for.
This handwoven wool pillow is made of totally natural, undyed wool sourced from the artisans' own herd of merino sheep. Double warp black and white stripes at the edges create a textured look to this decorative wool throw pillow, complemented by the hand-stitched embroidery that embellishes the center.
Fun hand-stitched wool pompoms decorate the corners of this great accent pillow, while the cotton twill backing features a handy zipper closure.
Use on its own as a fun accent, or pair with our other frazada wool pillows for a funky boho pillow set!

WHO MADE THIS FRAZADA WOOL PILLOW?
This Upis Handwoven Wool Pillow in Cream & Coal was handwoven in the high Andean community of Upis by the Awaq Mayki weaving association. Upis is located about 4 hours away from Cusco in the shadow of Ausangate mountain, the highest mountain in the region and the most important apu (mountain deity) in Quechua cosmology.
