Product Description

This large sized east west bag is a rainbow of woven stripes. The unique colors are achieved by natural dyes extracted from flowers, insects, barks and roots. It’s handwoven by the Chinchero CTTC weaving cooperative in the Peruvian Highlands of Cusco. The  stripes vary in width and in color pattern, based on the weaver who made it, making each bag unique, just like the rainbow.

The bags has a zippered closure, lined in black fabric with an interior zippered pocket. The opening edge is finished with a special Peruvian braid.

The colors of the rainbow can also be found throughout Chinchero textiles. Chinchero located 45 minutes outside of Cusco on the high plain Pampa de Anta, Chinchero looks out on stunning views where rainbows frequently arch across potato fields during the rainy season.

Backstrap woven by Yrma Alvarado Yucra, a member of the Chinchero village and cooperative member of Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco, located in the Peruvian Highlands of Cusco. The Center for Traditional of Cusco (CTTC) aids Quechua-speaking artisans in preserving Peruvian Inca textiles and weaving traditions, as well as in community networking and marketing.
