The Land of the Yachaqs: the Andean texitle tradition
- Local delicious cuisine
- Welcoming ceremony at the Sacred Valley
- Shearing, cleaning and coiling of alpaca wool
All about the trip
We will pick you up in the morning and depart for the Sacred Valley. You will be greeted by an amazing community reception. After the welcoming ceremony, you will begin “Decoding the Andean Textile” this starts with an explanation of all the different organic materials used to make the natural dyes – which plants they come from, what is their symbolism, and what other uses they have (many have medicinal qualities as well). The second activity is the shearing, cleaning and the coiling of the sheep or alpaca wool that is used in textiles – followed by a demonstration of how the wool is dyed by boiling. The iconography that is used in the textiles is extremely important to the villagers of Amaru – and through the duration of this activity, a local guide will explain the most important motives of each symbol that is weaved in the textile.After, you will have an amazing lunch consisting of local cuisine prepared fresh with local ingredients. We say goodbye and transfer back to your hotel.
