As descendants of the Incas their weaving tradition goes thousands of years back. The Quechua people are part of a nature religion where they respect and honor mother earth and the mountain spirits they call ’apus’ and the mastana is traditionally used in ceremonies as a cloth on which offerings to Pachamama and the apus are being served or as a wrap for the shamans healing stones. This fabric has symbols of the rainbow, flowers and the sun cross chakana. 52x58 cm, 100% organic natural dye alpaca wool, 78x75 cm
