The Quechua People, who are descendants of the Inca, live in the Andes Mountains. The designs that are incorporated in their weaving have been passed down through generations. They use the wool from alpaca and sheep they raise. The wool is spun into thread and then dyed with natural dyes made from flowers, leaves and wood. The weaving takes a minimum of 45 days to complete. The textile is a manta (blanket). This piece of fabric is then used to make various items, including bags, backpacks and hats.
We also carry products made by Land R from Peru. They handweave all of their products. They incorporate traditional designs into a more modern style of bag.
