Neck pouches. Peru. Huaraz
100% fair traded
Material: 100 % sheep’s wool, woven in and near Huaraz, Peru

These little woven pouches are used by the indigenous population of Peru for transportation of small utensils.
Like many of the woven articles in our assortment, these neck pouches are made by the craftsmen from the region of Huarez by hand, with sheep’s wool.
Huaraz, the place of production for the little pouches, is located in northern Peru, 3052 meters above sea level. The city is in the Callejón/Huaylas-valley at the foot of the mountain chain “Cordillera Blanca”. The 40 km wide valley stretches over almost 200 km between the Cordillera Blanca (White Mountains) and the Cordillera Negra (black mountains). The highest mountain is the Nevado Huascarán with a height of 6768 meters.
