Product Description

This crossbody bag is fabricated from a length of backstrap woven cloth, folded in the middle and joined at the sides. It is finished along the sides and the edges of the opening with a special Peruvian braid, nawi awapa. Tassels have been added at the base. The bag design consists of alternating plain and patterned vertical bands; the motifs are characteristic of the Pitumarca region.

This bag was woven by Hilaria Copara de Huaman a member of the Pitumarca village and cooperative member of Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco, located in the Peruvian Highlands of Cusco.

CTTC works with Quechua women and their families to ensure that their 2000-year old textile traditions continue to thrive, and to aid in economic development.
