In Pre-Hispanic Peru textiles were very important in society. From ancient times the people had access to good raw materials; cotton and the wool of lamas and alpacas in a variety of colours. This was also the time before currency in the form of money had been introduced so beautifully made textiles became the preferred objects for barter, gifts and as offerings.
