What’s better with pompoms? Everything. A total of 21 handmade natural undyed wool poms grace this contemporary piece that is exclusive to our stock. Durability is key given the handmade wooden base that is covered with a custom crocheted ivory wool textile. This artisan-made treasure speaks to a storied family history, along with a dedication to craft, particularly with the incredibly soft merino wool that is washed, carded and fully spun by hand on a traditional drop spindle.
The Ramirez family have been working with wool for over 200 years. Their home workshop in the highlands of Southern Mexico offers the family space to work together on handwoven wool pieces that are made on backstrap and standing loom, as well as knitting, crochet and woodwork. While their pieces are sublime, it is also time consuming, with a single 1kg ball of wool taking nearly a full week to wash, card and spin by hand. These collaborative pieces are exclusive to our stock and support fair wages that honor the time and tradition involved in their creation.
