We learned that Peru is a diverse large country with many crafts being made. Several styles of hats were worn, look at this one full of texture and color! And this knitted and bedazzled one. There is a lot done with embellishment. Extra beads and lots of buttons. Remember to click on pix to see detail.
Tomorrow's post holds many pictures of colorful yarns and natural dyes and weaving. Check out the incredible embroidery represented. Hand made, on clothing and every day items.
I haven't been to Peru but the light must be incredible to encourage such color!
This man was carving wood into utensils, intricate dressers and chess pieces as we watched.
This display of food staples to the region was also colorful. I got to see quinoa growing as it's one of their grains. Several varieties of corn were represented of course.
I would not fit in. And I felt like a giant at 5'7" as most of the Peruvians I encountered were tiny.
