Made of tightly woven, soft alpaca wool, the colours highlight the immense range of hues obtained using natural, locally sourced  dyes. This poncho features stunning, intricately woven designs representative of the community where it was made, showcasing the skill of its weavers, passed down from generation to generation.

Our products are woven by the hands of Quechua women who live in the high Andes mountains of Peru. These women still use the ancient methods of textile production, which date back to before the time of the Inca. The process begins with the shearing of their own alpaca and sheep and the shorn fiber is then painstakingly spun into thread by hand, using the puska (drop-spindle). The thread is hand-dyed using natural materials, and then intricately woven by hand using the ancient back-strap or 4-post looms. All of our woven fabric is made using the these methods.

Some products, such as handbags and pillow cases, require the use of a non-electrical pedal sewing machine for finishing, or for adding zippers or linings.


Threads of Peru items are made using organic alpaca and sheep’s wool. These fiber-giving animals live the good life, as they roam freely in the remote Andean highlands. There, they have very few predators and plenty to eat. The wool from the herds is colored using natural dyes from flowers, insects and minerals found in the region. Wool is washed using plant soaps. Looms are constructed from sticks and bones.

Fair Trade

Threads of Peru purchases textiles from women’s weaving cooperatives in remote Andean villages. We pay the women for their work up-front and at a fair market price. We also invest in the communities where we work, by providing training which strengthens their economic outlook and makes it easier for the Quechua people to remain in their ancestral homelands if they choose.




This item was carefully handmade by a talented Quechua Artisan in the remotes Andes of Peru.

Weaving Co-op Puca Turpay

This item was made by an artisan in the Puca Turpay weaving association that is established in the community of Rumira Sondormayo. Approximately twelve Quechua women make up this weaving cooperative. Weaving has always been a tradition in their village.

Rumira Sondormayo is located across the river from its better known and bigger neighbor, Patacancha. Small brick buildings lay on the valley floor and a gentle stream divides the two villages. Rumira has an approximate altitude of 4000 meters (approx. 13000 feet). Rumira is accessible by road, has electricity in the houses in town, access to both primary and secondary schools and the medical post in Patacancha. With road access and the proximity to Patacancha and Huilloq, the people in Rumira Sondormayo are the most organized of the communities we work with, and have clear goals as to what their needs and desires are. Rumira has approximately 40 families with their main activities in agriculture though sometimes the men work on the Classic Inca Trail as porters.
