Weaving avaTraditional weaving is an extremely important craft for Peru. The locals have been using woven garments and household items for thousands of years by now. And there’s even more to it. The native language of Andean people is Quechua, and originally it was an oral language, so Andeans needed some instrument to save and pass the stories, local history, and their thoughts and ideas to the next generations of just other communities. The woven textiles became a mean of communication between people and recording the knowledge.

Peruvians avaPeruvians are excellent craftsmen. Their clothing is still homemade in XXI century and looks pretty much like traditional garments used centuries ago. People of Peru wear ponchos, dresses, blankets, sweaters, layered skirts, tunics, sombreros, chullos and other native pieces of clothing. The national costume of Peru is very colorful and bright, it is beautiful and original although the clothes are rather thick and worm.
