Annie O.'s Peruvian Collection

Annie O.'s Peruvian-made woven belts in a rainbow of gorgeous colors,widths, and textures

Alejandra 100% Alpaca Shawl - handwoven by a “master weaver” from Central Peru. One of a kind and hand embroidered. (colors: black with cream flower, black with blue flower,
cream with black flower, cream with marigold flower)

Hand-Embroidered “Dotted” Peruvian Belt - handmade out of Peruvian sheep’s wool by a women’s cooperative in the High Andes. Naturally accented with horn buckle
(colors: cream, black, avocado, marigold)

Love these gorgeous new creations from Annie O. collection. The ‘socially responsible’ design company merges contemporary style with traditional artisan techniques - fostering cultural vitality, relieving poverty, and supporting educational initiatives in Andean communities and beyond. All of these items have been hand woven and/or knit by a women's cooperative in the Central Highlands of Peru. Visit Annie O.'s new website for more inspiring finds.
