Product Description

This exquisitely woven wool-alpaca shawl features rainbow stripes framing bands of traditional Peruvian motifs. The natural rainbow of rich colors all come from natural dyes. Sophisticated and elegant, the shawl drapes nicely and the edges are cleanly finished with a decorative tubular braid, nawi awapa, meaning “eye border”. The ends feature a 3″ twisted fringe.

Backstrap woven by artisan Delia Sallo Huaman from Chinchero, 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.
