Textile handicrafts are an essential part of the Andean Culture in Bolivia that dates back over 10,000 years. This ancient art form has predominately been undertaken by indigenous women in rural areas. Today, these women continue to use a variety of traditional techniques and materials to produce colorful artworks.
