These traditional Andean watanas, or ties, were used to show love to family members. They were tied into a daughter’s hair, draped onto brides and grooms outfits, etc… Each bead is added with a prayer and is connected to the stars. They can also be used to wrap wrists or any other use imaginable.
These ties are woven by the Q’ero in Peru.
