Product Description

This exquisitely woven wool, alpaca shawl features natural stripes framing bands of traditional Peruvian motifs highlighted in beautiful indigo. Sophisticated and elegant, the shawl drapes nicely and is finished with a 5″ twisted fringe. Handwoven on a backstrap loom this one-of-a-kind shawl is truly an individual expression showcasing the accomplished weaver.

Backstrap woven by artisan Luzmila Ylla Chicche from Chahuaytire, a highland village member of the Cusco Center for Traditional Textiles (CTTC). CTTC works with Quechuan-speaking artisans to help preserve Inca textiles and weaving traditions as well as to build skills, community networking, and to develop markets for the goods.
