These are one of a kind! Never two alike, if you got one there will be not another one alike. Each is stitched in a pedal sewing machine, it would be literally impossible to have one listing for each. These are only made in a remote village deep into Colca Canyon in Southern Peru. As far as we know only three families make them and we carry the largest selection available for these. Valuable and rare. Deep in the Colca Canyon of Southern Peru the natives make these wonderful embroidered accessories. Originally used to adorn their garments in festivities the locals use their designs applied to every day accessories. Made in colorful shades these pouches can hold glasses, money, cigarettes crystals, incense, stone fetishes, herbs, oils, jewelry pieces or change. In Colca altered sewing machines are used to produce the adornments on the fabric. The final product is a unique and finely decorated piece of folk art.
