Taleigos de Balteiro

Taleigo de Balteiro is a linen pouf divided inside in two sections. In the upper section, they are filled with seeds which offer the nostalgic touch of the old miller’s bags and the bottom section is filled with wood shavings. Thus, the pouf have the right shape, weight and consistency, maintaining the baggy aspect of seed taleigo’s. A small mica window enhances the curious tactile sensation, particularly for those who have not experienced sitting on a miller’s bag.
