Nature and apus – the spirits of our mountains – and Pachamama, our mother earth goddess, are our main inspirations as we weave and knit our traditional alpaca wool into beautiful works of art. My creations come from the depths of my imagination, guided by my ancestors. Those of us who keep the historical Inca weaving arts alive keep thinking about weaving, while carefully maintaining our deep and meaningful friendships with the spirits of the surrounding mountains – for these are the apus that protect and help us.
