The traditional textile arts of the Andes and the way of life that they depend on were all but lost in the twentieth century. Andean Textile Arts is an organization dedicated to supporting the people and communities of the Andes in their efforts to preserve and revitalize their textile traditions.      

 

Since its inception, Andean Textile Arts has served as a support organization for the Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco (CTTC), a Peruvian non-profit organization.
