Bolivian awayus {aguayos} and frazadas


Very hard not to fall in love with the
beautiful colors of the 
Bolivian "awayus" and frazadas.

These are some of the colorful "awayus" I took home with me
{awayus are used by Andean women to carry things on their back. They also carry their babies with these lovely pieces of cloth}


hard to decide which ones to buy


{frazadas are handwoven by Aymara women in the Andean region. They are used to protect against the  high altitude cold. They make wonderful blankets, rugs, throws}
