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.


Hand-loomed in Bolivia. 100% alpaca. 8 1/2"W x 70"L.


Dry clean.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Uros Islands Scarf:

            The scarf was much darker in color than the online picture. It was also much thinner that I expected. I would recommend this scarf only if the buyer knows of the above drawbacks. The scarf was nicely soft and should not cause irritation where it touches the skin.
