In the pages of this book, the young weavers will be your teachers. They chose to share what they have learned with you out of the hope that it will help you develop a deeper respect for the complex patterns of knowledge that are contained in eachmethod of manipulating fiber into a finished form. The book, by necessity, is but a brief glimpse into the textile traditions of the Cusco region. No book would ever beable to contain everything there is to know about this complex world, nor should it. Andean textiles are a living art, and to understand them fully they must be lived. The young weavers helped to show us what this truly means.
