This stunning cushion is hand embroidered with zip closure on the back measures 32cmx42cm. The incredibly intricate designs can take up to 1 week to finish and are made using 100% alpaca thread.
Our embroidered Ovino cushions come from Ayacucho and the surrounding mountains, this small hard to reach city is in between the Peruvian capital of Lima, and Cusco the home of Machu Pichu (17 hours bus ride from each).
The incredible cooperative of Ayacucho Womens Weavers (AWW) brings together the women of the local community and they also travel up to five hours deep into the mountains working with the local farming communities. The techniques date back 100’s of years and originate in the making of beautiful clothing the communities would wear for special occasions.
The team gives talks and lessons in the distant communities about technique and finishing for a more western market and also training on developing new products. Using profits for the selling of the items AWW run an English school giving classes to all the Womens children for free and any other children who can’t afford private classes.
