Subtly shading from one radiant color to another, this brilliant blanket makes a focal point in any décor. A black background heightens the drama of this lovely work. Hand-woven by the Yurivilca Family in the traditional Ayacucho style, it is decorated with tassels. The name, Gachakata, is Quechua for "blanket."
Small enough to be a lap robe, it is styled after the mantas, or "cloaks" worn in Ayacucho and sometimes used to carry babies.
