    LIMITED TIME ONLY! For a few lucky backers, we're offering the chance to get a single handmade ceramic mug from EITHER our Black Clay or Shipibo collection. Each one retails for $50 or more - a steal!

    Handmade Alpaca Blanket

    If you’re not able to make a trip down this way, we certainly don’t want you to miss out. We’ve created some of the softest, coziest, handmade alpaca blankets with our artisan partners in Puno. Tiodoro and Juana raise their own alpacas and create all their pieces from scratch - from shearing the alpaca to processing the wool to hand-dyeing and weaving the pieces. The result: super-soft alpaca blankets made sustainably in Peru.

    And no, we haven’t forgotten - Aula swag, handwritten postcard, thank you email and video, online shout-out and Wall of Fame honors coming your way.
