Textile Tradition: In the Andes, women artisans use the backstrap loom for traditional woven textiles. It is a completely non-mechanised loom, the oldest form in the world. It is constructed with wood, bone and strings, easily portable and possible to be set up in the home or elsewhere. All of the textiles used in Awamaki’s bags and purses are woven on back-strap looms by women living in remote Andean communities around the Sacred Valley. 

Story of the Design: The design of the textile has been inspired by Andean ideologies. The boldness of the symmetric stripes symbolize the search for balance and harmony in our lives, a prominent idea in Andean culture. 

Artisans: Awamaki works with different cooperatives in the Patacancha and Kelkanka communities for woven textiles, it is based on a rotation system to ensure income and orders are equally distributed amongst the artisans. There are 3 cooperatives – Awac Phuna, Songuillay and Wakanquilla Kelkanca – with about 90 women artisans who partner with Awamaki to weave textiles.
