WHO MADE THIS TUTA FRINGE WOOL FLOOR RUG?
This amazing handcrafted piece of artisanship was made by the Awaq Mayki (meaning handwoven in Quechua) weaving cooperative. Boasting over 20 talented and motivated members, Awaq Mayki partnered with Threads of Peru beginning in 2012 as an almost self-organized entity with over a decade registered as a formal association. 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.
