The Chacana, or Andean Star, is an iconic sacred symbol of the Inka experience.

Its structure symbolically contains much of the cosmology of the Andes including directions, regions, worlds, archetypes, means of perception, and the like.

The middle of the Chacana represents the Sun as well as Cusco, the center of the Inka realm. It also suggests Cusco’s Coriconcha (Golden Enclosure or House of the Sun), the central and most important structure of the Inka Realm.

This Chacana cloth works well as a sacred companion for the khuyas (stones) of a mesa or for divination with natural materials which the descendants of the Inkas have used for centuries.

These llama fabrics have been lovingly crafted by weavers from the Center for Traditional Textiles.
