For decades, designers worldwide have been influenced by the traditional textiles of Peru. Weavers of the Clouds explores the processes and practices of both historic and contemporary Peruvian costume via garments, textiles, photographs, tools, illustrations and paintings, dating from pre-Hispanic to present day.
Works presented include pieces by contemporary Peruvian fashion designers Meche Correa and Chiara Macchievello.
This show at the Fashion and Textile Museum near London Bridge brings together the ancient traditions of Peruvian weaving with its preservation and development into the 21st century.
