Beautiful Cusco 02

A short but wonderful trip in Cusco

It’s been ten years since I last visited Cusco, and for me, it is the best city to recharge energy.

From rugs to cushions to redecorate our living room 01

Peruvian frazada: From rugs to cushions in our living room

I had been thinking a while about making cushions of the rug (frazada) I had. Peruvian textiles always present at home. To be honest, I made them by hand but I was not happy with the finish. I tried to make them with the sewing machine but the thickness of the frazada (which I also used as a rug) and…
