The Inca Empire existed in what is current day Peru from 1438BC to 1533AD. The empire was and still remains famous for a number of trades including its production of wildly colorful textiles and groundbreaking weaving techniques. One of the most common forms of weaving was done using the kallwa or the belt loom. Today, belt weaving is not frequently practiced due to the difficulty of the craft and the popularity of factory produced textiles.

The newest addition to the LU100 Etsy shop are the beautiful and vibrant camera straps hand woven in Ayacucho, Peru by the "Taller Sumaq Waita" (Beautiful Flower shop). We have worked a wonderful alliance with this women cooperative in the Peruvian Andes who have years of weaving experience passed down from generation to generation. They create these one-of-a-kind items as belts and we have adapted them to be used as strap covers.

Each strap is made uniquely using hand-spinned lambswool in a belt loom. All the fibers used are dyed by hand with natural pigments native to plants and other natural materials in the Ayacucho region such as cochinilla, walnut tree, chillca, maasucopa, and molle plants. Each strap is finished with an intricately and colorfully hand-stitched floral detail. They also include a playful pom-pom finish. The interior of the strap is lined using a lightly padded fleece to increase shoulder comfort.

Each piece is uniquely crafted, which means the flowers may vary in color and style. We hope you enjoy our newest addition to the shop! Provecho!

Dimensions: 30" x 2 1/2"
Fabric: 100% Peruvian lambswool exterior & fleece interior lining
Features: Pom-pom finish; hand-stitched floral detail; light padding for increased shoulder comfort.

** Please order in advance because straps are handmade and mailed from Peru. Please allow 3 to 4 weeks to receive orders.
