One of our highlights of 2018 was our trip to Q’eros with Willka Yachay.
Q´eros is located 10 hours away from Cusco, at 4,000 meters over sea level and passing Paucartambo. It is a magic place where it is cold and there are starry nights.
We were very interested in getting to know the lifestyle of the pure and traditional culture of Q’eros. After all, the Q’eros are known to be direct descendants of the Incas. Their mantles are unique: they maintain an impeccable textile tradition, with designs that remain from the time of the ‘Tahuantinsuyo’.
Their respect and adoration for the ‘Opus’, the ‘Pacha Mama’ and coca leaves inspired us and motivated us to keep investigating our millennial customs.
