Product Description

This exquisitely woven scarf has meticulously embroidered geometric bands. This technique is unique to the village of Sallac, and the finished result looks as though it was produced by a supplementary weft weaving technique. The naturally-dyed colors are rich and deep: sage, cochineal with accents of blue, mustard and rose. Sophisticated and elegant, the scarf had a good drape and is finished with a twisted fringe.

There are two pattern variations: broad, solid bands with narrower pattern stripes; geometric bands with narrow solid stripes.

Backstrap woven by artisan Juana Quispe from Sallac, 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.

Colors: sage, cochineal, with accents blue, mustard, rose
