Artisan Leonor Quispe of Peru hand makes these decorative mitts in the arpillera style. The backdrop is a section of an Andean blanket on which she appliqués a Peruvian landscape of llamas strolling through a field of cactus by a small pond with ducks. The sun peeks out from the mountains in the background. The back of the mitts is solid white. A loop of yarn topped with a pom pom is attached to the top corner of each mitt for easy hanging. These decorative mitts would make a colorful addition to any kitchen.
Please note: These mitts are for decorative purposes only; they are not heat-proof and are not appropriate for use as hot mitts.
