Weaving in the Peruvian highlands; dreaming patterns, weaving memories
Weaving in the Peruvian highlands; dreaming patterns, weaving memories.
Alvarez, Nilda Callanaupa.
Interweave Press, Inc.
Alvarez, who is herself a master weaver and founder of a weaving cooperative, school, gallery and museum, is dedicated to preserving this heritage and also to explaining traditions and methods. Here she relates the close relationship among land and weaving as no one but a real practitioner can, showing each step of the process, including the emotional process of following a tradition or creating a new one. The photographs here are simply gorgeous.
