Photo Friday - Kids Around the World: Portraits of Peru
Children in traditional dress hold special appeal, and there are many to be admired in Peru. These kids were both spotted at Awana Kancha, a Quechua word for "Palace of the Weaver." Awana Kancha is a living museum for any visitor seeking a rich understanding of the colorful Peruvian textiles and traditional weaving techniques of the Andes. From caring for the llamas to selling the sweaters, every step of the process is not only demonstrated for visitors, but also passed on to the next generation. These children are the traditional weavers of tomorrow.
Be sure to visit my extensive gallery of llamas, weavers, and textiles of Peru. And take a look at other Delicious Baby Photo Friday Bloggers!
