Blanket with belt 01

Blanket with belt for transporting.

Puyos.

The puyos, also called blanket, are used to warm the bed. They are woven on looms, and made with a thick wool dyed in bright colors. They have very colorful stripes and floral or animal representations

They are made of two sewn woven pieces. The wool is dyed with a knot technique (batik technic). Thus, color shades allows to create drawings and even write short legends.

Most of them were made about fifty years ago and were used by those who have woven them. These pieces remained as originally and were not restored. Therefore they keep the precise message of the hands that produced them.

They are currently used in urban decoration as rugs of an unequaled value.
