Product Description

There’s a distinct look to the weaving of Patabamba, 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 shades of red in this bag come from the natural dye cochineal which is a beetle that grows on local cactus in the Highlands. All colors in this bag feature plant dyes and natural fibers, and 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  Huaman Lloque Katyzulma , a member of the Patabamba village and cooperative member of Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco, located in the Peruvian Highlands of Cusco.
