About Yachaqui WayiweavingsEducationDonations






In the mountain community of Huaripampa people have been weaving for ages. In the year 2000 The Mountain Institute started a weaving project which reinstated the use of natural dyes for their weaving products. They also researched and implemented traditional patterns.  The results are high-quality, sustainable woven products. The weavers' associations have small plantations where they cultivate the plants used for ink. These plantations are environmentally sustainable.

Thanks to many visitors from Crooked Trails and other tourist groups, the weaving projects are developing.  With the extra income generated by the project, community members have been able to send their kids to school with uniforms and materials.

In the future we hope to hold weaving workshops and demostrations led by community members.
