Ekekos picture from Cltn's Flickr
I've been trying to build a sort of mood board with these Frutti print samples and other elements that represent abundance, fertility and spring (am I too early yearning for it?). I've always admired the Altiplano's weaving, woolens and their use of bright colours in contrast with the dryness of the surroundings.
(Above) Pompoms symbolise fertility and are beautifully used in the llamas flowering ritual.
