These ceremonial ponchos are woven by Remigia, Sebastiana, and Rosa in Q’eros, Peru.
It takes about one year to weave. Most of these textiles are naturally dyed, and woven with handspun alpaca or baby alpaca wool. Girls learn to weave in their early teens, and there are very high levels of weaving.
Spinning and knitting skills are passed down through the generations. These people are master weavers, and communicate their sacred union with Mother Earth, through the patterns and symbols in the cloth (called Pallay) that they weave.
All profits go to Pampamesaoq Don Agustin and the Q’ero community.
Please be aware that the colours of these textiles may differ slightly, so it’s best to contact Ali (email@example.com) if you have any specific questions.
