Collection: Pre-Incan Monkey(Warp-patteded Brocade)

Dyed and woven fabrics produced in the pre-Incan period, when ancient civilizations continued to flourish in Peru, South America, for many centuries before the establishment of the Incaic Empire (13-16th centuries), are characterized by a rich variety of unique patterns composed of primitive figures and symbols often denoting a sense of humour. The design of this brocade is a combination of a monkey surrounded by flowering plants and small diamond patterns with the sun in alternate arrangements. It is executed as a warp-patterned silk brocade.
