Weaving in South America

Recently on my travels in South America I drove my traveling companions mad with getting “my weave on” as they liked to refer to it. Looking at weaving in many a museum and many a country and many a market place.  In a museum in La Paz a lovely women gifted me with a book on how to weave in all in Spanish. I am not sure why I must have nodded at exactly the right time when she was speaking to me.  The lady in the bottom photo was from the streets of La Paz, Bolivia who I bought an intricately woven belt from after she told how she wove it sitting in the streets using a nail in the sidewalk as the stabilizer for  the piece.  I was impressed what can I say.
