This wachala features yarns of natural earth colors in balance.  Q’ero people use the wachala to bundle sacred coca leaves, ceremonial objects, and sacred stones (khuyas).  Women tuck them in the waistbands of their skirts. Men carry them in their coca bags. You can put these inside a mesa representing your inner world, while the outer mesa cloth (mestana) represents your outer world.  17 x 11 inches.  43 x 28 cm.
