Master Weaver Señora Maria Shows Us How It's Done In Peru
To say I felt lucky to meet with Señora Maria and her friends in Choquecancha, Peru would be an understatement.
During an adventure from Cusco to Machu Picchu with Mountain Lodges of Peru we stopped in to say hello to the master weavers in their tiny mountain village. There, we were greeted by the women with flowers and kisses. They showed us how they dye their threads with local vegetation before taking us into their weaving space, which was adorned with dozens of their colorful and stunning creations.
It's difficult to travel to Choquecancha on your own so if you're interested in meeting Señora Maria for yourself book the Sacred Valley and Lares Adventure with Mountain Lodges of Peru. Trust me, every stop along the Inca trail was more special than the last.
