About the Aguayo Blanket
The Aguayo is traditionally a rectangular carrying cloth used in communities in the Andes region of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. It is used to carry small children or various items on their backs.
The fabric is very colourful and consists of striped, geometric shapes and traditional symbols of birds, animals and folk legends. These colours and patterns change from region to region.
