Tones of brown stripes on this rectangular chal-type shawl evoke the high Andes devoid of vegetation. Raquel and Gregor are a husband and wife team from Peru, whose creations carry the name Sillpa, an ancient Aymara word which means 'softness,' 'comfort,' and 'pleasure.' With 90% baby alpaca, this shawl is an example of all of these concepts.
