The size and shape of a large traditional poncho, these are carefully woven from millspun alpaca — which is hard to use for authentic backstrap weaving! — to produce a softer, more drapy fabric and a real hybrid garment you won’t find anywhere else
These amazing textiles are woven by hand on backstrap looms in a variety of CTTC’s member associations, using yarn dyed by hand with natural dyes using sustainable practices and materials local to the Andes of the Cusco region.
