Product Description

There’s a distinct look to the weaving of Huacatinco–CTTC’s newest weaving association. 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 warm burgundy and gold colors in this bag, both from plant dyes and natural fibers, are typical of Huacatinco, 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 Quispe Garcia Simeona, a member of the Huacatinco village and cooperative member of Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco, located in the Peruvian Highlands of Cusco
