Working women as the Inca ancestors in the city of Cusco

Working women weaving beautiful textiles in community groups

I share images with all curios women of this special Pictures Group. These are a pair of pictures of working women weaving beauty and detailed textiles in Cusco as our Inca ancestors did in past centuries. They used to work in community. Up to know they exchange their jobs for food or little money. I´ve taken these pictures two years ago because I was very impressed.

In bigger cities of my country, these textiles have more value because represents a job that requires too much dedication and effort.
I am sharing with you with these images and I hope you appreciate and enjoy them.
Thanks for your attention !!!

Best regards for women of Pictures Group.

Really beautiful

Wow, Liliana, those textiles are beautiful! It should cost a lot not only because of the beauty of the result but also for the time and hand work to make the pieces, and their ancient tradition. Thanks for sharing!!!

Abrazos,
Ana

Hi Ana. Thanks for your e-mail. It´s true the textiles are really beautiful. The pre-inca weavings have more beautiful colors and designs.
