BOLIVIAN FRAZADAS

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 used by many andean families).
