Our embroidered pillows are part of Colca Valley home textile collection. This new collection has a very special meaning for me since it is inspired by the place of origin of my maternal grandfather. He was born in Cabanaconde, a town that is located just at the end of the journey through the Sacred Valley of Colca in Arequipa, Peru.
