Who made this Peruvian Poncho?

The beautiful color combination and intricate designs, carefully woven row by row on a traditional back-strap loom, illustrate the skill and creativity of Master Weaver Daniel Sonqo and his family. Among the traditional designs featured are lakes, jungle fruits and flowers, stars (chaska), hummingbirds (q'ente), and Inca pathways (pica pica). You'll treasure this outstanding Andean garment. 

Over the years, the Sonqo family has worked to refine the traditional weaving and dyeing techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation since before the time of the Inca, creating unique pieces of unsurpassable beauty.
