Ten years ago my dear friend Chris took the trip of a lifetime to Peru and Machu Pichu.
I couldn't go.
Chris brought me back a piece of weaving.
It's about 18" square.
It was given to her by a coca leaf reader.
He carried coca leaves in a sacred bag and dropped them on this cloth.
Then he would read them just like tea leaves I suppose.
It would have been made by Quechua women in a village high in the Andes.
It was woven in strips about 9" which were then sewn together with the orange zigzag type stitches above and the pink and blue stitches in the pic before.
