Q'ero Hats, Bands & Scarves

Q’ero men knit their hats using 5 curved knitting needles. Each of the seven levels of sacred symbols represents an aspect of the Andean cosmovision. When a man would court a woman, he would painstakingly add thousands of beads to demonstrate to his beloved that he has the virtue of patience.  Woven hatbands are worn by both men and women and are often beaded as well.
