Additional Info

ARTISANS IN THE ANDES OF SOUTH AMERICA HAVE A LONG TRADITION OF CREATING KNIT PIECES FROM THE SOFTEST ALPACA FIBERS USING INTRICATE PATTERNS AND BEAUTIFUL DESIGNS.  THESE TRADITIONS ARE PASSED ALONG FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION FOR A RICH HERITAGE OF BEAUTIFUL HANDMADE CREATIONS.  ARTKNIT USES THESE TRADITIONAL ANDEAN TECHNIQUES IN OUR PILLOWS, INCORPORATING ONE-OF-A-KIND DESIGNS THAT ARE EQUALLY AT HOME IN A RUSTIC INTERIOR OR A CONTEMPORARY HOME.

ARTKNIT PILLOWS ARE ENTIRELY HANDMADE FROM 100% ALPACA WOOL.  ALPACA IS ONE OF THE FINEST, MOST LUXURIOUS FIBERS IN THE WORLD; IT IS SOFTER THAN CASHMERE, HYPOALLERGENIC, DURABLE, AND EASY TO CARE FOR. ALPACA KNIT DOES NOT LOSE IT'S SHAPE OR PILL, AND WILL RETAIN ITS BRILLIANCE AND ELEGANCE FOR YEARS TO COME. 

ARTKNIT PILLOWS USE A GORGEOUS SPECTRUM OF YARNS FROM BRIGHT AND VIBRANT TO DEEP AND EARTHY. THE COMBINATIONS HAVE A SUBTLETY THAT ALLOWS THEM TO WORK HARMONIOUSLY IN ANY INTERIOR. THEIR RICH COLORS, BEAUTIFUL TEXTURE, AND VIBRANT DESIGN WILL MAKE THEM THE FOCAL POINT OF ANY ROOM.
