The above video shows the traditional weaving process of Quechua women in the high Andes of Peru. From the shearing of free-range alpaca, natural dying, hand-spinning wool into thread, to weaving the fiber into exquisite patterns, and finally making timeless fashion and decor items for the world to wear and enjoy.
This video was made by LATA Foundation during their visit with us last Summer. LATA kindly funded materials for our community weaving projects.
