Maiwa has recently arrived back from a trip to Peru where we gave an indigo workshop, attended the Tinkuy gathering of weavers, and presented a workshop on marketing craft. While in Peru we placed a large order from the Centre for Traditional Textiles of Cusco (CTTC). That order has just arrived, cleared customs, and hit the stores. It is a shipment of exhibition quality textiles from the Centre for Traditional Textiles of Cusco (CTTC).
Cushion covers, small & large bags, table runners, placemats, knitted Peruvian hats, wall hangings, and much more. Everything is hand woven and naturally dyed.
Prices range from $19.95 - $199.00. Here are some photos of some of the items and artisans.
