Handmade 100% Wool Wide Faja Belt – Fair Trade from Peru

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION - WIDE BELT FAJA

These statement-making wide belts are the perfect accent piece to any day-time or evening activity! Known as a faja in Spanish, these fajas are part of local typical dress, but will make a statement as a highly crafted, boho look featuring age old Quechua designs such as sallaqocha (calm lake)!

Paired with your favorite dress or skirt-top combo, these wide faja belts are best worn around the high waist, adjusted to size with two finely woven ties.

Our Wide Faja Belt comes in two designs:

Multicolour Gray, featuring designs of trigo (grains) and naturally dyed colors, such as yellow (dyed with q'olle flowers) and green (dyed with ch'illca leaves)

Multicolour Turquoise, featuring designs of sallaqocha (calm lake) and naturally dyed colors, such as turquoise (dyed with the kinsa kuchu plant)

Size: Approximately 7 cm x 76 cm

WHO MADE THIS WIDE FAJA BELT?

Tucked away in the lush foothills of the Sacred Valley of Cusco, widely known as the historic playground of the Incan royals, the Munay Urpi (meaning beautiful dove in Quechua) cooperative of Huaran is reached by a single road stretching between the townships of Urubamba and Calca. Surrounded by rich farmland, Huaran is actually composed of 5 smaller villages – Cancha Cancha, Ch’uro, Sillacancha, Taqllapata, and Arin - with members coming from as far as 1.5 hours away to participate in the cooperative. In addition to increased involvement in the textile market, local families largely keep animals such as cows and sheep for their own food supplies and their abundant crops of white corn, lettuce, strawberries, and roses fill farmers' market stalls year round.

The majority reside in the community of Upis, situated quite literally at the foot of the great Ausangate mountain, the highest in Southern Peru, and an important Apu (mountain god) in Quechua culture.

Nawi Awapa Glasses Strap

$15.99

Hand-woven Peruvian Glasses Cord– 100% Naturally Dyed Wool

Size: 

Fiber: 100% Wool

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION 

This is an funky, fresh and fair trade glasses strap that is bound to make a statement wherever you go.  You won't lose your specs when you go out with this great glasses cord that is both strong and durable, made of 100% wool.

This colorful sunglasses strap uses an ancient technique called ñawi awapa (eye border) which we have used as the name for these glasses cords.  Nawi Awapa is the crossed-warp tubular edging that’s applied to many of the Peruvian Chinchero textiles.

To explain further: Threads of Peru works with a range of Cusco region communities, but this special bordering technique only comes from one, Chinchero, made famous by Nilda Callanaupa who was featured in National Geographic magazine.

For weavers, this is further explanation of the "Eye Border" technique: its a complex braid with the cross threads held in place by the weft.

32 informational cards about the traditional iconography of Quechua textiles!

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

BRAND NEW to the Threads of Peru product line, the "wisdom cards" sets will be your guide to the high Andes and its ancient iconography. Each of these 32 cards features a different traditional design of the Cusco region with its Quechua name, meaning and a suggestion for meditation. 

Even our team has been surprised and delighted by this little known information! 

WHO MADE THE WISDOM CARDS?

The idea behind the Wisdom Cards was to share the wisdom of the Andean weavers, not only for their aesthetic complexity, but also their reflective properties. 

In 1947, Doctor Delia Vidal de Milla of Cusco began an investigation in various high Andean weaving communities. She had already observed that the women of the Andes did not follow guides or patterns, and that each textile was her unique inspiration.

During her research, the women explained that their weaving was done in a state of silence and meditation, and the symbols they used had special meanings related to those hours of reflection.
