More About Studio Altar

Studio Altar presents Daily Rituals in collaboration with Allpa, a Peruvian Fairtrade brand working with artisans for 35 years. Handwoven in the Andes of Peru, the throws are made of the softest Alpaca wool and represent the contrast of earth and neon colours traditional of the area.

Studio Altar limited edition of pottery Vestige is a new take on the traditional line of the Chulucanas pottery and works as a manifesto for returning to the cultural roots of the technique for inspiration. By placing the pieces in kilns filled with mango leaves, the hand-thrown terracotta pieces of Vestige transforms into a deep-black surface, an object that carries the legacy of Pre-columbian traditions in its making.
