Willka Yachay and Q’eros families have formed a cooperative to share their traditional weavings at a just price in Peru and abroad. Profits from fair trade sales are reinvested in the community. Willka Yachay helps generations perpetuate the ancient and beautiful textile tradition at the heart of Q’eros culture while enhancing family and community economic security.

"What was earlier invisible to me became evident. The presence of mountain spirits was everywhere, even in the devotional weavings of the Indians. Their ancient textile techniques connected past to present: a continuous thread passed from generation to generation over millenia."

John Cohen, Hidden Threads of Peru
