The most beautiful and impressive handwoven tapestry in Alpaca.
The picture is formed by small pieces of alpaca delicately put together and woven to hold in the perfect place. It looks like a perfect print and it is hard to believe how it is composed.
This is a real piece of art very important for the Andes identity. Markets, mountains, nature and their people are the main inspiration of cultural expression. The colours and materials are also very unique from the high Andes.
Take it home and be sure you will be impressed every day by its detail.
Know your Artisan and your impact
Handicrafts used to be the main source of income for our artisan partners from Otavalo. Unfortunately, due to the high price of the USA dollar and this being the currency in Ecuador, tourism and tourist buyers have decreased dramatically. Artisans have been forced to work in other industries leaving behind the traditional crafts putting at risk indigenous ancestral techniques to be passed on.Â Your purchases give work security to families and communities while they preserve indigenous ancestral techniques!
