Alpaca Natural 2
Vintage Camas, or Phullu (woven large blanket)
A multipurpose weave used all over Bolivia by both the Aymara and Quechua cultures. They are used as bed spread blankets or rugs.
The whole process to make these pieces is entirely by hand. It starts with the wool, either sheep, llama or alpaca that is clipped, collected,cleaned and handspun into ovillos (yarn balls). While the design is simple, the colors and the combination make them vibrant and stunning.
The Phullu is usually woven on a ground loom or a pedal loom and consists of two separate parts which are then sewn together.
Phullu's make unique bedspreads at the foot of the bed, throws, colorful rugs, table cloths and great picnic blankets.
This is a vintage piece - this is a real Phullu that belonged to someone for likely decades. We take great care in hand selecting the pieces we choose and while for the most part they are in amazing conditions, these have been loved and used for many many years and therefore aren't perfect 'brand new' items. We feel this adds to the beauty and uniqueness of these pieces, and we hope you do too.
