About

Vintage shoulder cloth (Manta) or carrying cloth(Aguayo) is fromt he Quechua people of the Sacred Valley of the Peruvian Andes in the Cuszo area. Woven entirely of wool using the warp-faced double-weave technique so that both sides have an equally "finished" look. The piece is composed of two vertical panels, handstitched together in the center. Four colors are used; deep red and white vertical columns depicting a variety of symbols, separated by narrower dark brown-black, white and deep red flower motifs set off by narrow orange pinstripes. Five narrow brown-black vertical stripes separate the wide decorated stripes. Quecha weaving is rich with anthropomorphic, zoomorphic, and geometric motifs and symbols.
