This naturally dyed 100% alpaca scarf repeats a bold traditional patterning from the Huacatinco village in the Peruvian Highlands of Cusco. Handwoven on a backstrap loom this one-of-a-kind accessory is truly an individual expression showcasing the accomplished weaver. The design puts a spotlight on the strong use of traditional motifs which in this case resembles a repeat of X and O which could be the woven lake design. Beautifully finished with a twisted fringe.
The scarf was woven by Quispe Garcia Simeone, a member of the Huacatinco cooperative. These artisans are members of the Center for Traditional Textiles in Cusco, Peru. CTTC works with Quechua weavers to ensure that their 2000-year old textile traditions continue to thrive, and to aid in economic development.
