PERUVIAN ARPILLERAS

Share This Page

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 in the 4th Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
