In Lima we’ve partnered with an artisan-led workshop made up of weavers from San Pedro de Cajas, Tarma, and Huancavelica. We were blown away by their textural experimentation and interest in creating experimental, complex designs.

Our new woven pillows and some of our rug styles are woven here.The small group brings on additional weavers based on production size to work at their centralized workshop. A favorite workshop innovation is their bicycle turned yarn winding machine.
