Women of The Sacred Valley

Row after row of colourful scarves, blankets, backpacks, gloves and hats fill markets in almost every city and town in Peru; all hand woven out of Alpaca wool. I visited a small community of women in the Sacred Valley who make various hand-woven products and are aided by the Planeterra Foundation.
