There is an immense diversity of patterns found in the tapestries of the Peruvian Andes, deeply rooted in ancient traditions handed down from generations over thousands of years. The methods used by the artisans, such as the use of traditional looms and organic natural dyes, have been unchanged in modern times, giving a truly timeless quality to their handcrafted works.
Our mantas were produced in the traditional fashion, utilizing sheep#39;s wool yarn colored with natural dyes, then carefully handwoven on the loom. The artisans directly control every stage of production, from the creation of the yarn to the weaving process.
