A women’s textile collective located on the island of Chiloe in southern Chile, Kelgwo Textile Art crafts gorgeous garments and home accessories out of handspun 100 percent organic wool that has been dyed with local plants and roots.
“Kelgwo” means “loom” in the language of the region’s indigenous people, the Mapuche. For a full catalog, visit Kelgwo’s official Web site, or check out its Etsy page to purchase directly from the ladies themselves.
