Tablethrows and Placemats
These woven throws offered are copies of the traditional ponchos, “unkus” and “llijllas” still worn by the Tarabuqueños. Available in a range of reds, from a dark burgundy through to a subtle scarlet, they make attractive throws, for either tables or sofas. Hand-woven, they are particularly notable for their thickness and hardwearing nature.
* The llijllas (see above), which are normally used by Tarabuco women to carry their babies or baggage upon their backs, are for the majority red, and have coloured borders in the middle and at either end.
* The ponchos and unkus (see left) are available in the traditional stripped “rainbow” style that Tarabuco men are particularly famous for, and have woven fringes.
In addition, woven tablemats are available, using the same weaving technique and range of colours. The price for the placemats are fixed, whilst the price for the throws varies slightly, according to their exact size. For more information please see Pricing and Ordering
