Beautiful & Colorful & Unique
A literal yet extra special meaning is now conveyed by the word, heirloom. Our Heirloom pieces are traditional, vintage Peruvian mantas hand-woven on looms by unskilled craftsman as gifts for their families, passed through the generations. It is this rawness of the craft and the freedom to create without conform that make these pillows uniquely beautiful. 100% natural wool and colored with organic dye, they showcase a rainbow of stunning colors and pattern. Not only are they rare (each one sought out by our artisans), but each piece is also a one-of- a kind with its own special story.

Adding a bold-colored or patterned throw on a muted sofa will add sparks of color in any room. Case in point: the Fireworks alpaca throw. Its super fun stripe will liven up any space. You can also give an armchair extra character when you drape it over the back left or right side of a high-back chair. It not only looks warm, but feels like it too. The throw is made of alpaca –a natural fiber that is super soft, warm and lightweight.
