These handwovens are among some of the beautiful things brought back from Jeff’s trip to Machu Picchu, cloth woven at the Center For Traditional Textiles of Cusco (click and read more about the mission of the Center!)
I find it intriguing and so endearing that these woven items have tags which include pictures, names & birth dates of the weavers!
But I find it even more intriguing that these two weavers share the same birth year, and that this year is the very same as my own, and believe me, I seem to be the only one who finds this to be an uncommon coincidence. Oh, but just look at the weave, detail….
By the way, Jeff has come back fit as a fiddle, and the three of them had a wonderful time. I can’t believe it is now already two weeks since he was in the middle of the epic trek along the Camino Inca, and I was in a frenzy knitting, pattern writing, and submitting the designs ~~ so perfectly timed was the Camino Inca Chullo submitted when he arrived in Cusco, and the Camino Inca Ponchito when he was actually at Machu Picchu~~ like the ancient Incas, maybe, and the suns rays, I put so much significance in these events to be coinciding simultaneously.
I have a photo shoot on the calendar for beginning of June with my nieces, where these latest Camino Inca ponchitos will be modeled and I can’t wait to come back and show them off!
Such beautiful fine weaving. Gorgeous. Thank you for sharing. xo
Thanks Sorcha, it seems I am always happy to brag. 🙂
Silly, you’re not bragging.

Thanks Michele, and your rocking chair really makes a great prop! Thank you a million for that (indirectly of course)…xxx

The woven runner and purse are beautiful, the colours and stitches are amazing. It is really lovely to see who made the woven items.
Jen your Camino Inca Cowl and Ponchitos are gorgeous. I look forward to seeing the photos of the cowl and ponchitos being modelled.
