Dimensions: 24 x 24 x 6”

Thousands of uniform stitches make up this structured, three-dimensional pouf. The textile is made by hand in the unique style of Northern Peruvian crochet, assembled with a durable grass base made of Junco desert material. Every little detail is done by hand, down to the assembly of the zipper with which you can separate cover from base to wash. Available in 3 shapes - oval, triangular and round with firm interior foam.

DAR TEXTILES are entirely hand woven with acrylic fibers and natural grasses, and assembled through traditional and innovative crochet techniques from the Andes. D.A.R Proyectos co-create social innovation to make products that create economic empowerment for indigenous women in Perú.

Ships in 2-3 days when in stock, otherwise made-to-order in 4-6 weeks.
