Warp-face woven ceremonial coca cloth (incuna). Aymara indigenous group, Bolivian Altiplano region. Mid 19th century. This piece was woven mostly of undyed yarns in brown, tan, white and mixed grey naturally colored alpaca fiber. It demonstrates just some of the remarkable color range found in the highland alpaca fiber bred by the Aymara over the centuries. Employing only a small amount of dyed alpaca yarns (red, yellow and green) is uncommon. The banding is well proportioned with a grander scale which often indicates good age. This is a very nicely woven textile in good condition. Size: 29.5 x 24 inches.
