The Calado Scarf
The Aymara people of northern Chile live high in South America’s Andean mountain range. Here, extreme temperatures can range from -20º to 40º in a single day. These mountains play a central role in Aymara community life, providing pasture lands for animal grazing and various natural resources for the communities who live in this remote paradise. Known for its heat-trapping and moisture-wicking properties, alpaca wool is a prized luxury material traditionally used to make various types of clothing to withstand the extreme weather.
The Calado Scarf references the awe-inspiring Andes with the mountain motif, a traditional Indigenous symbol, handwoven into each piece.
This scarf measures 60 cm wide and 200 cm long.
