There’s a distinct look to the weaving of Pitumarca, Peru, yet every woven piece is different. Each one reflects the imagination, mood, and life experiences of its weavers, from the color choices and stripe sequences to motif selection – never two exactly alike.
The soft, dusky colors, both from plant dyes and natural fibers, are typical of Pitumarca, as is the prominent use of their traditional motifs. Use the bag for containing your spinning, knitting, or even an e-reader.
This bag was woven by a member of the Pitumarca village and cooperative member of Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco, located in the Peruvian Highlands of Cusco.
