Peruvian textile

Free Peruvian Textiles

I found your group via your website, and I’m hoping someone in your community would be interested in two vintage Peruvian textiles I’d like to pass on for free. I bought them from local campesinos in the Peruvian Andes near Chavin when I was an archaeologist there in the early 1990s. I’ve held onto them for a long time but it’s time to let them go and honestly I have no idea what they are “worth,” I’d just like to see them go to someone who appreciates them.

One is a traditional, not decorative just everyday donkey saddle bag. It is handmade, black and off-white. Wool I believe. Roughly 40” long total.

The other is also a very traditional, not decorative brown wool poncho. The poncho is very tightly woven, and was the type worn by men there for everyday warmth and protection. It could be repurposed as a blanket or throw as well.

I’m in Santa Rosa, in Bennett Valley,

Cheers,
Elizabeth
