In Cuzco, Peru we went to a store that makes clothes, rugs/carpet, jewelry and they showed us how they make alpaca wool turn into this beautiful work of art filled with vibrant color and intricate patterns. This picture captures a woman making alpaca wool into string to prepare it to be dyed by using natural products. This was our first day in Peru where we were also really exposed to the culture and shown how this was also their lifestyle where they do this everyday for a living. Image by Cristin Pearson.
