The story behind our weaving

Traditional weaving was and still is an imperative part of identity in the high Andes of Peru, alongside traditional alpaca herding and the use of the local Quechua language. Since Quechua was initially an oral language, weaving was the method by which individuals communicated their thoughts and emotions about the natural world. They told stories and recorded their histories in this way.

Woven textiles were an imperative measure of wealth, and assumed a focal part in civil and religious ceremonies. The spin of the yarn, the images woven into the textiles, the colours and methods used, all show us information about the weaver and where they originated from.

Our items are handmade in Peru, they are made with alpaca and baby alpaca fibers in the highlands. Our items are unique, lightweight and help share Peruvian culture.
