Arpilleras are intricately detailed hand sewn textile pictures. Each piece illustrates some aspect of daily life for the women of the Andes. The arpillera, in an array of colors , tells the story of the country markets where locals come to buy vegetables, clothing and wool for weaving. To do this project, each student was given a copy of an arpillera textile picture to use as a guide. This project takes two class periods to complete. This project, “Peruvian Textile Art,” can be found under the 4th Grade tab in the sidebar.
