Peruvian Textile

The art of textile making in Peru, has a glorious history dating back to thousands of years, textiles were a highly treasured commodity, largely due to the great amount of labor and care that went into making them. Under the Inca fine fabrics were prized to such an extent that they became regulated by the state and they were the preferred royal gift.

The quality of a fabric in the clothing Andean people wore, as well as the motifs and iconography on their garments signified both social status and cultural identity.
In the highlands were the temperatures drop considerably after sunset, wool from different camelids were preferred. Alpaca was considered finer than llama wool and vicuña wool was judged to be superior to both. In the warmer areas of the coastal region cotton was the preferred material.
Human hair, feathers and metal were sometimes used to decorate the surfaces of fabric.

Netting, a technique for making textiles without a loom, employing loops and knots in the creation of the fabric, May have had its origin in the inventions of the fishing net, as essential tool for the early Peruvians who settled along the coast, where textile manufacture is thought to have begun.
The coastal cultures of Paracas and Chancay produced particularly beautiful textiles, many of them survived to the arid coastal climate, buried as funerary, bundles with mummies. Mummy wrappings, such as those found at Paracas Necropolis, had a special significance.

The bodies of older males were wrapped in the most exquisite fabrics indicating their high status.
Patterns and images of plants and animals may have conveyed information about the deceased’s linage, role in the society and occupation.
The early horizon was a time of great inventiveness in textile design and manufacture as seen in the Chavin culture.

The heddle loom came into use around this time a device that raised and lowered warps so that wefts could be easily inserted.

Chavin design and iconography probably established the wearer’s allegiance to the Chavin cult. The textiles discovered at the seaside cementery of Karwa, for example were probably religious banners, they exhibit Chavin style and incorporate many of the images from Chavin iconography.
Colorful paints were applied directly to these textiles. Interestingly on these banners the Chavin Staff God was depicted as a woman.



The archaeologist Richard Burger that the Karwa saff Doddess may have been sisters, daughter or wife of the great staff of Chavin de Huantar.

More Catholic Iconography about Catholicism 


Our Virgin is related to the Pachamama
Cada una de estas imágenes está cargada de lujos, deslumbrantes joyas en oro y plata , de bordados hechos a mano, de las mejores flores , bandas encargadas por sus mayordomos los cuales compiten por sobresalir , los de la hermandad de cargadores y danzantes; llegando distinguirse más en sus recorridos en competencia por quien llega primero a la Catedral son los santos  San Jerónimo y San Sebastián  desde tiempos antiguos, pues se inicia con la salida de San Jerónimo  por la madrugada ya que este santo tiene que recorrer unos 10 km y San Sebastián que se encuentra a unos 5km hace la espera correspondiente para el inicio de la competencia hacia el templo de Santa clara; así como también tenemos a las comadres Santa Ana y Santa Bárbara quienes vienen juntas desde Poroy tanto de ida como de retorno.

The horses caused an enourmous impression
En la Catedral desde tiempos antiguos cada imagen tiene una posición designada en la cual se encuentra encabezando el Señor de los Temblores como dueño de casa; según relatos se dice que cada santo y vírgenes estos cobraban vida tomaban forma humana y bajando de sus andas empezaban su reunión  y comenta al Señor de los Temblores también en forma humana como le  fue en todo el año , la situación de los barrios en lo que ellos residen si sus feligreses se comportaban bien o mal si se habían olvidado de ellos o no para que decidieran un castigar o no al pueblo Cusqueño pero según dicen  la Virgen su madre pedía por los Cusqueños para que no los castigue.
Saint Joseph comes from 10k away from
downtown Cusco

Pues el día Jueves el día central muy temprano se realiza una misa interna para después las hermandades de cada santo y virgen los viste y cambia con joyas y ropas de gala para luego tomar posición en el atrio de la Catedral para la Misa y Te Deum realizado por el arzobispado del Cusco al igual que antaño , asisten las autoridades religiosas como las autoridades electas , miembros de la órdenes religiosas masculinas y femeninas así como diversas instituciones; una vez terminada la misa se da inicio a la procesión del Santísimo Sacramento colocado en una carroza de plata  donado por el Obispo Bernardo de Serrada al cual le sigue la procesión de las imágenes que alardean un dominio de sus cargadores para cargar las andas extremadamente pesadas debido cubiertas y repujadas en plata.

Al terminar las procesión las imágenes de los Santos y Vírgenes retornan a la Catedral hasta su octava que es el siguiente jueves donde en el mismo orden en el que hacen su recorrido el día central empiezan a partir, Santa Ana y Santa Bárbara vuelven a partir juntas hacia el templo de Santa Ana mientras que otras imágenes como la Virgen de Belén , San José ,Santiago, San Blas, San Cristóbal con San Antonio ySan Sebastián regresan a sus iglesias el  viernes , el sábado la virgen Purificada con San Pedro y el domingo la Virgen Almudena retorna el domingo.

What is an appropriate amount of tip?

Whenever you are in the world tipping is optional when you take a pre-paid tour, on the other hand if you take a free walking tour service is mandatory unless the service is very POOR. Our free tour service is good to great, since tour guides will do their best so that attendees will feel like tipping more, as simple as that, don't take our word for it, just check out oure views on TripAd.

If you go to NYC or Berlin, the philosophy for free tours is "tip what you like” or "pay what you want", this is a great philosophy and really works because New Yorkers are BIG TIPPERS, same goes to the German Tourists, they all tip nicely and decently.

On the other hand, Keeping this kind of philosophy does NOT work in South America since we have many, hundreds of tourists that are traveling as Backpackers, which is good BUT a large amount of these tourists are very, very, very CHEAP, they are asking for a set of menu of 1 SOLES (0.30cents dollars), this is so impolite. If you travel to USA or Switzerland you cannot ask for 1 dollar set of menu that would be so ridiculous. Apart from this we also have many tourists is South America who don't have the culture for tipping such as Israel, Canada, China, Korea, Japan or France, we understand every single one of them, indeed we agree with them on the fact that if you take  a pre-paid service there is NO need to tip, cause you already paid for this service, ON THE OTHER HAND this is a free walking tour service, tour guides and the team entirely depend on tourists economic contributions, therefore tipping is MANDATORY, DECENT TIPS – NO COINS - Tipping is personal not per group.

Read all remarks below so that you know how to tip.
Free tour Tip in NYC is 20 USD per person
Free Tour Tip in Barcelona is 15 to 20 euros per person
Free Tour Tip in Budapest is 15 euros per person
Free Tour in Santiago Chile is 12 UDS per person
FREE TOUR REFERENTIAL PRICE IN CUSCO is 7 USD per person (20 soles per person)

In Italy, Tour guides say: "Coins are for the water fountain, paper bill for the tour guides"

All tipping prices above can be proved correct by checking tripadvisor comments and we are people who have attended walking tours across the globe since we were also travelers therefore we had the idea of opening a walking tour company in Cusco.
Before you join our company now you know how much to tip your tour guide.
Finally, Attending our free tours are totally volunteer not obligatory, we are an exclusive company that makes focus on quality, so quality is guaranteed with us.

If you take a city tour in Cusco, tour agencies will tell you, “It is just 20 soles” (7 dollars) that is not true, because they don’t tell that you will need entrance tickets. So this is how is goes: Tour Guide & Transportation is 20 soles, Entrance Tickets is 130 soles (Boleto Turistico), entrance to the Cathedral is 25 soles and Qoricancha is 15 soles, all together is: 190 soles(65 USD), Now you compare 65USD to 7USD, so there is no need to say, "OMG it is expensive", "I though it was free". Keep in mind that a free tour is a philosophy don’t translate it literally. If you take a free walking tour with other comapanies in Cusco their decent tip is 50 soles which  is ok, that is their policy.

All above stated is not for New Yorkers or nice attendees that have the culture to tip, most of these customers they even tip 50 USD or 100 soles plus, obviosly when a tourist tip like this, we are totally motivated to keep offering what we offer.
Don't turn on this face, when the tour guide ask for tips, cause NO free walking tour in the world is FREE.

There is no need to think that we are setting a price here since all free walks across the globe are this way, apart from this, tour guides are family men, they also eat, think about this please.

IMPORTANT! The last 5 years we noticed that, The French are among the world's stingiest tippers, don't be like that please, it is ok no tipping if your server got a salary although a free walk tour guides works on tips only and DECENT TIPS.

THE CULTURES OF ANCIENT PERU - MUST KNOW



THE DISTANT PAST
The territory on ancient Peru had been well travelled for more than 10,000 years before the arrival of the Spaniards in the land of the Incas.
At Lauricocha an archaeological site situated at altitude of 13,000 feet in the central Andes, caves have been found in which the first Peruvians found shelter.
In the south they also took refuge in caves, such as those found at Toquepala. Cultural evidence at both sites largely confined to projectile points shipped form stones. The walls of Toquepala’s caves are painted with hunting scenes which date to the early hunting and gathering period.
The Incas’ remotest ancestors were hunters and gatherers. Primitive groups along the pacific coast were especially adept at extracting marine products from the bountiful coastal waters.
They were the descendants of groups of originated in Asia crossed the Bering Strait into North America during the last ice age.
These early Asiatic people dispersed throughout the continent, bringing with them from their native lands the cultural traditions which, by the second millennium BC, would evolve into the first significant Andean civilizations.

The post-firing technique was often employed by Paracas Culture.
The Vessels were painted with a variety of colours by mixing mineral  pigments with plat resin.
Paracas-Cavers culture, 700 B.C. - 100A.D. 


THE FIRST SINGS OF CIVILIZATION

Moche Culture, A.D. 50 - 800
During the second millennium BC. , several thousand years after the first humans occupation on the region, the first signs of sedentary civilization began to emerge in Peru, following a shift from hunting and gathering activities to intensive to marine exploitation and then to agriculture. One result of this early manifestation of a more complex social structure was population growth, which in turn necessitated a search for improved irrigation, cultivation and food storage techniques.
Architectural evidence is the best measure of the beginnings of civilization.
Enormous monuments began to rise along the central coast and in the northern region of Peru. Las Haldas for example (around 4000 years old), is a vast pre-ceramic site on the north of coast which included residential areas for the elite as well as ceremonial and communal centers, and the ruins of Caral are even older, apparently dating form 5,000 years ago. Early monumental public architecture emerged in Peru as result of the wishes of the elite, who evidently benefited from the construction of these imposing edifices.
Essentially religious in nature, these structures elevated the prestige of the elite and ensured that their orders would be carefully obeyed. The primary objective of the ruling elite was to increase their own privileges by gaining preferential access to available resources. A secondary result of such rule was the maintenance of the community and guaranteeing for society as a whole.

ANCIENT  PERUVIAN CIVILIZATION
The people from the Andes built large and complex cities, irrigated entire coastal valleys, worked with gold and other metals, wove textiles of intricate beauty, made by clay vessels so vivid that they were sculpture than pottery and mummified their dead.
They did not, however, develop a formal system that we can read today, and most of what we know about them has been learned through a  legacy of architectural remains and the objects of stone, clay, gold, textile and other material which they were buried with their dead. The Spaniards reported on their experiences with the Incas during the conquest and their writings provide us with another valuable source of information.
Researchers have studied artifacts and identified successive artistic styles in their efforts to establish a cultural chronology for their various people on Ancient Peru.
In the past 60 years more sites than ever before have been excavated by professional archaeologists and these have dated to through scientific methods. In the cases of several cultures, we now understand a great deal about people who produced their artifacts, their way of life, their political structures, and even something of their history. In other cases, however, our knowledge remains limited.
And yet, during the thousands of years that people have lived in Peru, inter-regional trade and evolving socio-cultural complexities have led to the spread of similar artistic styles over a wide are. Scholars call the phenomenon of an artistic style which gains widespread acceptance an archaeological horizon: a term used approximate contemporary between distant sites.
In the central Andes Peru, a series of major time periods has been established around the horizon concept. After a nearly period of hunting and gathering, known as the pre-ceramic period, comes the initial period, which is marked by the first use of pottery. This is followed by five periods which cover relatively widespread artistic styles(Early, Middle and Late Horizon), as well as intervening periods of extensive influence of the Inca Empire, and the middle horizon probably reflects a smaller-scale states that were nevertheless fairly large.
The broad similarities between early horizon cultures were most likely due to the adoption of religious cults by emerging elites in different regions of the Andes. The following cultural sequence has been simplified, and includes only the best known cultures, whith emphasis on the coastal and regions. Learn more about Pre - Inca Culture with best private walking tour guided company.


CHAVIN, 10000 – 200 B.C.
Chavin Culture, 1000-200 B.C.
In the first millennium B.C.  A new architectural and artistic style spread across Peru.
Its beginning may be traced back to the Cupisnique style of the northern Peruvian coast. Similar deities and animal figures have been found on pottery and textiles throughout the country. These elements were brought together and reached their fullest expression and the site known as Chavin de Huantar. It is though that Chavin as the main center of a religious cult, and objects featuring Chavin iconography have been found throughout the Andes. Located at the headwaters of one of the large tributaries of the Amazon which emerge from the high Andes, Chavin could only be reached from the coast by crossing the towering peaks of the Cordillera Negra and the Cordillera Blanca.

Chavin and Cupisnique are characterized by a complex, almost baroque, style which combines human figures with zoomorphic attributes, typically featuring menacing fangs, claws, or beaks. Many of the images were engraved around stone columns or shafts, making them difficult to interpret, and intended for leaders of the cult.
