Our vintage Bolivian frazadas are the ultimate glogal textile. Rugs, throws, on the bed, on the sofa, on the floor, as a wall hanging, at the park, at the beach, take them camping, to a festival, anywhere. Hand woven in two parts then sewn together. Their versatility and durability are legendary. Their colours and patterns are dreamy.

Please note - our frazadas are very robust and will last a lifetime, however they are vintage so please expect visible signs of use and marks. The colours, designs and aging are what make vintage frazadas so magnificent.
Why vintage frazadas are so important to Sunday Isle? With the mass production of textiles designed to replicate cultural pieces and the emergence of synthetic fibres, traditional 100% wool frazadas are becoming scarce. The weavers are under pressure to produce products at lower costs. We believe this traditional art should be coveted and supported not squeezed out of the market. Purchasing vintage Bolivian frazadas from a fair trade cooperative that ensures the sellers (often the weaver or immediate family members) are paid a fair price is how we can support and encourage these traditional textile makers.
