Hand woven “Manta” bag from Peru

I met Delia, a woman from the Quechua ethnic minority living in Peru and Bolivia, whose parents lived in a traditional way.

Delia, who runs a folk craft shop , sells bags and pouches made from a textile called "manta" made by indigenous people.

I felt that she had a unique sense in the design of the bag and the choice of manta rays that were not available at the market or other shops, so I had her make a semi-custom bag for me.

In the highlands of the Andes, manta cloth made of wool is essential for protection from the cold. The wool of domestic sheep and llamas is sheared, spun, made into thread, and dyed. All processes are done by hand and are part of mountain life.

The brown, black, and white parts are the natural color of the llama's undyed fur. It is characterized by a soft feel without any stiffness.

The dry air, earthy colors, and sunlight of the Andes mountains. The texture gives you a sense of the nature of the mountains and the earth.
Manta cloth has a warm, pale color and a soft texture that gives you a gentle feeling.
It has a design that is easy to use on a daily basis and has a different atmosphere from ethnic ones, which tend to give a flashy impression.

The material is very light and soft, but the bottom is reinforced with hand-knitting, making it durable.
The bucket type makes it easy to put things in and take them out, and it has plenty of capacity.

It can also be folded into a small size, so it's recommended for trips where you don't want to add to your luggage but still want to bring several bags.
It can be used as a bag to carry your personal belongings when traveling or walking around town.

All are one-of-a-kind items.
