Quechuan Woman hanging dyed yarns to dry

Photo take in a small village in the Andes, where the native women have re-learned their traditional crafts of dying and spinning alpaca yarns and weaving them into various cloths and garments. They use all natural materials for the dyes and are able to achieve vibrant and diverse colors.
