The twoolies are wool animal sculptures with artistic personality that come to your living space to stimulate thought and emotion. They are designed by architect Sindy Posso, and Mayan artists, combining modern trendy concepts with ancestral native designs.
Each twooly is entirely and carefully handmade by skillful Tzotzil weavers, creating 100% wool pieces hand-woven on back strap looms. The Toztzil is an ethnic subgroup of the Maya that live in the highlands of South Mexico who have kept the weaving tradition alive for generations. Mayas living in areas of the highlands, where warm garments and blankets were beneficial, incorporated wool into their textile traditions, sometimes with traditional hand-embroidered designs. Designer and artist meet together to decide new design, color directions and new pattern innovations.
Every piece features a unique combination of textures, colors and patterns that make it truly one of a kind. There are simply no two twoolies alike.
Let the twoolies inspire your imagination!
