One of the most beautiful textiles we have seen in Q’eros. The hand spun baby alpaca fibers give this table runner a soft “hand” and sublime beauty. The sacred symbols of Inti (the sun and light), the Chun’chu dancers, the bands of crop rows, and the overall balance and harmony express the Q’ero cosmovision of the world. Weaver Gloria Apaza Samata lives in the Kiku Q’ero Nation. Her husband was president of the community and died tragically, leaving Gloria in dire financial situation. Your purchase helps her and her family.  This beautiful textile is 15.5 inches wide, 47 inches long, plus fringe at both ends.  119 x 39 cm.
Your purchase includes a photo of Gloria’s husband holding this textile, the last time we saw him before his transition.
