Beautiful natural dye fringe tassel. Brass clip. Great as bag decoration. Great on your keys. 10 " length.
Awamaki, chattra’s craft partner for this fun tassel, is a fair-trade co-operative working with women artisans of the Sacred Valley of Peru; they invest in skill development and connect women weavers to markets, enabling them to bring prosperity to their rural villages.
While recently in Peru, chattra journeyed with Awamaki to the Patacancha and Huillot villages where we spent time learning from and weaving with the local Quechua women. Passing on traditional textile techniques and cultural heritage is important to the indigenous peoples of the Andes: children begin learning to spin raw fiber into yarn, warp looms, and how to create natural dyes at a young age.
