Description
 
This dramatic Vintage Peruvian textile comes from Cusco, Peru. It is made with handspun alpaca wool on a traditional back strap handloom and usually takes several months to complete. All colors are natural organic dyes from plant sources and the black & browns are natural alpaca color. It's quite old and in excellent condition! The native Peruvian lady I purchased this manta from suggested that it is probably over 80 years old.

Ideas for uses: spread it on the back of a chair, use it as a decorative bed throw or hang above the bed as a headboard wall hanging for a dramatic effect. This gorgeous throw with lots of intricate details is an easy way to add color, depth and interest to any large monochromatic wall.
