Reviews

Will inspire weavers. . . . The intricacy and artistry of the items, most of which are woven on simple equipment, is astonishing. The vocabulary of weaving is illustrated in the weavers' native languages (Aymara and Quechua) as well as English and Spanish, and photographs of contemporary weavers illuminate the methods in action. The result is a volume that helps keep a vibrant and ancient culture alive.
