This unique cosmetic pouch, in 3 fashionable color combinations, was woven on a traditional back-strap loom by indigenous artisans from various Quechua communities in the Cusco region. The weaver created the ancient designs by carefully selecting each thread, row by row.

The materials in this cosmetic pouch are 100% natural – locally sourced sheep's wool, hand-spun on a drop-spindle, and dyed with natural dyes. This product is finished with cotton lining and a zipper closure.


The fabric for the Wayra Cosmetic Pouch was handwoven by the weavers of the Munay Urpi weaving association in Huaran, in the heart of the Sacred Valley. It was then sewn up Celia who has over 20 years of expertise working with traditional textiles of Cusco and has thought to many other sewers in town.
