Weaving Lives: Traditional Textiles of Cusco – Preserving the Textile Tradition/Tejiendo la Vida: Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco – Preservando la Tradición Textil

 Author: Nilda Callañaupa Álvarez  Category: Book  Publisher: Thrums Books/Schiffer Publishing Ltd.  Published: 2005

This is a small bilingual book that was actually a catalog of an exhibition “Weaving Lives”. For this exhibition we focused on the different stages of a weaver’s life in the communities around Cusco, illustrating the importance, originality, and functions of each of these stages as a weaver grows in skill. Due to the lack of space not all communities could be included in the exhibition, thus those displayed are only a sampling of the rich and diverse textile tradition in the Cusco area.
