Andide kudumid / Andean weaving

Posted by
Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 15 November 2022 in Lifestyle & Culture.

Andean weaving is rich with innumerable Quechua symbols and patterns. Some symbols, known as pallay in Quechua, have been used for time immemorial, while others are modern innovations. Traditional textile patterns honor the Pachamama, (Mother Earth), and express thankfulness for growth, regeneration, and interconnectedness with the natural world.
Andide kudumid sisaldavad lugematul hulgal ketšua sümboleid ja mustreid. Mõned sümbolid (ketšua keeles tuntud pallay nime all) on kasutusel iidsetest aegadest, teised on aga kaasaegsed. Traditsioonilised tekstiilimustrid austavad Pachamamat (Maaema) ja väljendavad tänulikkust igavese taassünni ja loodusega seotuse eest.
