Amazonian Indian Woman Weaving

 
Amazonian Indian woman weaving cotton cloth using a handloom.  Handwoven cotton cloth is used to make the traditional tunics (called "cushmas") worn by both men and women. This cloth is being woven by an indigneous Amazonian woman in Peru using a traditional loom.  Some of the warp or foundation yarns were dyed before weaving to produce the stripes.
