I managed to do a bit of shopping in Lima. Here are some of my favorite handcrafted items. Sondra and I were first taken with these embroidered belts. You saw some photos of one of the shop vendors in an earlier post.
I purchased these dolls at a little shop outside the Museo de Oro del Peru. They are replicas of Pre-Columbian Chancay culture dolls and are newly-made from recycled fabrics.
There are lots of purses and zipper bags made from recycled weavings.
This knitted skinny scarf was less than $6.
Here's an older handwoven belt that I purchased at the Indian Market.
This is a new handwoven belt of acrylic yarns.
Here's an example of how the carriers are worn as backpacks.
