alpaca shawls

I was in Bolivia just before Christmas last year and had the chance to attend a fair in Cochabamba where only women artisans were exhibiting. I could not resist the alpaca shawls they had for sale. I bought some for me and to give to my friends in Kenya.




Heather and solid colors all mixed together on a table from an artisan from Sucre. All the dyes are natural. The green colors result from dyes produced from the famous Coca leaves cultivated in Bolivia.
