The huggably soft Pallay decorative throw pillow is woven on the backstrap loom by traditional Peruvian weavers in Upis in the Ausangate region of Peru using their own hand-spun, 100% alpaca fiber. The soft alpaca fiber used to hand-weave this throw pillow is sourced right from the community's own herds - organic, local and totally low-impact, making this pillow a totally sustainable and eco-friendly choice!
The Pallay pillow features an oversize woven design, called pallay, and four hand-knotted tassels. Read more about how the Pallay alpaca throw pillow was created in our insider preview blog!

WHO MADE THIS HANDWOVEN ALPACA PILLOW?
This Pallay Alpaca Pillow in Surf 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.
