An ancient matra made of loom warp wool incites a perceptive discovery of self. This small blanket arose from thousand-year-old indigenous cultures. In Argentina, for centuries, it’s been used on top of the horse as part of the apero (mount). At night it gives shelter to the gauchos arrieros (riders).
