Chauaitiri Village

A visit to the village of Chauaitiri. Their village is situated at the highest point of the mountains and they have a tribal council that makes decisions for everyone. They made the most beautiful woven items.

Rainbow looms with lama bones to weave colorful alpaca thread through.

This baby knows what's up. I loved the hats so much it was the first thing I purchased in Peru. Most people bargained but I couldn't cause thats just some damn fine craftsmanship. I forked over the Soles for those amazing geometric designs.

The yarn making. The colorful blue yarn gets its coloring from men's pee. No, I'm not kidding....
