Overview

The Uros are an indigenous South American people whose civilization predates the Inca conquest. Today they continue to live on human-made totora-reed islands on Lake Titicaca and in small communities along the Rio Lauca in Bolivia. This soft alpaca scarf, in a range of muted earth tones, is inspired by millennia-old Uros textiles called mantas, which are simple striped, woven blankets.
