How it's made

How it's made

Using ethically sourced leather and handwoven textiles the women of Ollantaytambo construct each product by hand. The yarn is ethically sourced, hand dyed using azo-free dyes, and is handwoven on a backstrap loom. Using these ancient technologies and techniques allows the women artisans to preserve their craft and provide for their families. The designs reflect ancient Andean designs that are an important part of Quechua culture. Because Quechua was never a written language, weaving was and still is a way to communicate ideas and tell stories.
