Product Description

This exquisitely woven wool, alpaca table runner from the weaving community of Santa Cruz de Sallac, Peru,  features meticulously embroidered geometric bands in a rainbow of colors. 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: deep purple frames a rainbow of colorful design stripes. Sophisticated and elegant, the edges are cleanly finished with a decorative tubular braid, nawi awapa, meaning “eye border”.

Backstrap woven by artisan, Josefina Apaza Quispe, from Santa Cruz de Sallac, a highland village member of the Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco (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: deep purple and rainbow center with rose accents
Fiber: 90% wool, 10% alpaca
