Peru has a rich history of textiles: From Wool, Tweed, Feathers, Spidery Thin Yarns, Embroidery and many more exquisite Pre-Inca to Post-Inca superb samples.
One of my favorite places to see Chancay textiles is at the Museo Amano in Miraflores, Lima.
A wonderful small museum with exquisite pieces.
Alpaluxe also is proud of its tradition of promoting textiles with its shawls and scarves made from the finest fibers of Vicuna, Guanaco and Alpaca.
Featured is an original gouache inspired by textiles. You can find it under "Sets & Gifts" on our website: www.alpaluxe.com
