These vintage textiles, called frazadas, have been handwoven by Aymara women in the Andean region since Pre-Hispanic times, and used to protect against the high altitude cold. Weaving of each frazada is done in two separate parts which are then sewn together; this central seam shows decorative details and colors that highlight the beauty of the tapestry.
Frazadas make great rugs, blankets at the foot of the bed, and throws – and also tablecloths and picnic blankets (which is how they are still used by many Andean families).
