Product Description

These handy, woven pouches come in a variety of patterns. The fabric is handspun from locally raised sheep’s wool, dyed with Andean plants and cochineal, and handwoven on simple looms. The basic design consists of warp-faced stripes bordering a central patterned band. Colors are natural white, brown and gray with greens or yellows and a touch of rose. The pouch has a zipped closure and is fully lined.

The weavers of this area of Bolivia are actively working to rescue natural dye techniques and preserve their weaving heritage. They are supported in this effort by PAZA (Project Artesania Zona Andina), a volunteer effort led by Dorinda Dutcher and local leader, Dona Maxima Cortes. Their goal is to empower weavers by helping them gain financial stability through the sale of their crafts.
