Behold one of Sumaq Qara's colorful masterpieces - the Peruvian cushion in different styles and variants. Handmade by Peruvian women in backstrap looms; they weave together beautiful fabric trims to create these one of a kind cushions. One or two or more of these cushions in different combinations definitely bring character and color to any space.
Made of 100% Merino wool. Merino wool is special because it's super finer and softer than traditional wool. A single fiber is even thinner than human hair, can you imagine that? And it's 100% natural and biodegradable, disappears after 1 year in the ground.
