Geo's and Andean animals
We have again been floored, this time by the Peruvian hand weavers and their fearless use of colours.
Peru is a culture rich country with a deep and vibrant history so there is plenty for all the weaving villages to draw on. Inca and indigeous decoration/artwork was very much geometric based so this has filtered into the textiles. The geometric diamond formations sit back with other significant icons- Pumas, Condors, Llamas and Pachamama (goddess of the indigenous people of the Andes aka Mother Earth).
With so many hands well taught through the years in the art of weaving we were bound to make some amazing finds. And how could we say no to Geo's mixed with Andean animals?!
These are just a taster of what we found as needless to say we came away with our hands full..the list of projects for our return are adding up!
