Adventures in Peru ~ Centro de Textiles Tradicionales de Cusco

Centro de Textiles Tradicionales Del Cusco

The art of weaving is a fascinating study.

We were able to observe it on several occasions

during our trip to Peru.

 The different professionals I spoke with indicated, that Quechuas who learn this trade,

begin their quest at age 20.

These large pieces weaving takes them a whole year to complete. What dedication!
