Arpilleras are exquisitely detailed hand-sewn three dimensional textile pictures that illustrate the stories of the lives of the women of Peru and provide essential income for their families.

The arpilleras tell the stories of life: stories of planting and harvesting potatoes, tomatoes, cabbages, grapes, corn; stories of spinning and weaving wool; stories of country life, of tending llamas, sheep and goats; stories of weddings and fiestas.
