Kuy-Kuy means bridge in mapudungun, the language spoken by the mapuche people in the center and south of Chile. As a company we would like to be the connection, the bridge, to bring the indigenous chilean culture to the rest of the world.
Our products are made by artisans with sheep wool purchased to mapuche people from the south and alpaca wool from the aymará people from the north. They use traditional methods in all steps of the fabrication: They use scissors to shear the sheep, they spin the wool with wooden spindles and dye it in pots of hot water with natural elements for color, such as leaves, roots and wild fruits. Finally, it’s hand-woven, therefore making each product unique and different.
Each of Kuy-Kuy’s products conveys the essence and warmth of the indigenous people of Chile with a purely handmade process.
