A  beautifully woven Chinchero Mini Mestana Set –  Created by Susi
The weavers of Chinchero are crafters of the rainbow. They are the first weaving community of the Center for Traditional Textiles, reviving ancient techniques.
This hand-woven, naturally dyed mini-mestana cloth provides a compact way to carry medicine stones.  It’s also a beautiful altar cloth. A rare find.
We’ve just received an amazing selection of rainbow textiles from the weavers of Chinchero, Peru. This village is known as the rainbow community because of its glorious, naturally dyed fabrics formed in celebration of Kuichi, the Quechuan term for rainbow. The rainbow was sacred to the Inka, as it spoke to the diversity and expression of their grand social, cultural, and political experiment.
The ladies of the Chinchero weaving community asked us to support their crafting of a number of these stunning pieces. Each unique fabric represents the woven rainbow signature of the weaver herself and of the Chinchero weaving community.
Whether used as your mastana, a companion mesa piece, or a decorative item in your home, you will certainly notice the exceptional quality of these weavings that have been dreamed into being and woven in the prayer of creation. By purchasing these special pieces you are supporting the most sophisticated expression of the weaving arts of the Andes and letting the weavers know that we value their work and its authentic beauty.

This rainbow inspired Mestana is made in the high mountain air near Cuzco, Peru. It has sections of action in symbol, and sections of repose, solid. Made of 100% natural Alpaca and sheep wool, natural dyes.

Mestana Size is 17″ x 14″
