Small ceremonial cloth measuring approx. 20 x 25 inches
This type of small cloth is variously called tari or inkuna, depending on the use. They are made both for ceremonial and utilitarian function. This tari is made from handspun wool, hand-woven on an Andean loom in a single panel. The dyes appear to be entirely vegetal or natural color wool. I would guess the date to be ca. 2000. There is a tubular edging all around, and this has yielded a curling of the corners and edges, so that the cloth does not lie flat.
Condition is Excellent, with signs of very light use.
