Lima based designer Marta Castañeda works with the women of Las Mujeres de Cajamarquilla to produce these beautiful textile pillows and accessories.
Each piece is hand-crafted in Peru using 100% cotton woven on a traditional backstrap loom. Backstrap is an ancient weaving technique where the one end of the warp is attached to a fixed object such as a tree or wall and the other end has a belt or "back-strap" that goes around the waevers waist. The tension on the loom is controlled by the weaver leaning back.
