Details

Crafted by hand, this delightful morral combines rich textures with cheerful colors. Artisans of the Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco first knot the yarn before it is woven on a backstrap loom. The motifs derive from Inca art in an effort to keep the traditional patterns and techniques alive as well as their Andean identity. This texture is known as urpi, which means "dove" in the Quechua language.

"Artistically beautiful!"

This handbag is wonderfully artistic. The design is so original and the wool fabric is soft and vibrant. Even the bottom of this artistic piece has these cute colorful stripes that blend in gorgeously with the whole piece.
