About

“Threads of Peru is a social enterprise that connects the world to the woven work of Quechua women artisans; helping to preserve their ancient craft and provide them with economic opportunity.”

Our office is located in Cusco, Peru. The founding members represent the countries of Peru, Canada and Australia.

This is our blog where we write about our projects, and our activities in the three communities of Rumira Sondormayo, Chaullacocha, and Chupani.

Our official website is: www.threadsofperu.com

This video shows the traditional weaving process of Quechua women in the high Andes of Peru. From the shearing of free-range alpaca, natural dying methods, hand-spinning wool into thread, to weaving the fiber into exquisite patterns, and finally making timeless fashion and decor items for the world to wear and enjoy.

We have an Ebay Store where we sell exquisite textiles!

Our online store features authentic 100% handmade Andean textiles. Products are made using the traditional methods of the Incas with natural dyes and organic fibers.

    • Sorry for the slow response! Just seeing this comment now… but glad to hear you bought some Andean textiles while you were in Peru! They are truly superb products! Great website by the way. I just watched the Peru trailer and will watch the episodes.

      Cheers!

  1. Hi Angie,
    I stumbled across your blog today, and I’m stoked to have found it! Are you able to ship worldwide from your eBay store? If so, I’d like to include your eBay details in our client info packs, as a number of the guests that join us on our Peru adventures would be interested in purchasing Andean textiles after their trips. Any comments welcome!
    Kind regards,
    Steve

    • Hi Steve! Sorry for the slow reply…

      We do ship worldwide and we’d be happy to have you feature our store. Could you just provide a link to our website instead? It’s just that we have more than one place where we sell online and those links are on our website – and we are in the process of building our own online store, so soon enough customers will be able to purchase right from our website.

      Our url is http://www.threadsofperu.com

      We really appreciate it!

      Muchas Gracias!
