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.
