Inspired by an angel among us, THE MARTÍNEZ is made with churro wool and hand woven. 

The cross nods to that of the wild burros in the Northern New Mexico who have similar markings on their back and are known to be some of the most healing and protective guardians around.

Originally there only five made of the orignal design, however we just made one more with one black panel in the front for subtle design change.
