The Illariy Alpaca Scarf in four color variations was handwoven by the Sonqo family in the high Andean community of Parobamba - these truly stunning pieces connect you with Latin American colors, traditions, and vibrant lifestyle.
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. Over the years, the Sonqo family has worked to refine the traditional weaving and dyeing techniques that have been passed down through the generations since before Incan times, inspiring them to create unique pieces of unsurpassable beauty.
When you wear an Illariy Alpaca Scarf, you adorn yourself with a magical world of textiles and colors. The Quechua word "illariy" that inspired these Master Weaver Scarves refers to the dawn of a new day.
This Fair Trade scarf was purchased directly from the artisan.
