Made in Ayacucho, which is known as the “Capital of Folk Art and Crafts of Peru,” the artisan craftsmen have always drawn from the natural abundance of resources around them to create vibrant and visually striking functional works of art. This region was inhabited by various indigenous groups, including the Wari, Chanka, Nasca, and Inca peoples. The textiles and ceramics left being attest to their dedication to their crafts. The Spanish arrival culminated with the indigenous impulses into new forms of style, techniques, and imagery.
The artisans of these pillows preserve and promote ancestral textiles techniques. They weave, embroider, knit, crochet and sew high-quality textiles products such as these pillows. They use and make natural products by hand, which is a breath of fresh air in a market that is dominated by mass-products products. Each pillow is one of a kind, handcrafted, one at a time.
