This 'Chuspa' was made in by an Artisan from Ausangate, which is considered by the Quechua people to be the most sacred mountain in the Andes and is held as the guardian of Cusco (Navel of the world). Chuspas are traditional Andean bags which have been used for thousands of year to carry the sacred Coca leaf. Coca is used as a food sustenance, energy, clarity, connection and divination throughout the Andes.

Quechua weavings are rich and organic. They embody a wealth of ancestral knowledge passed down through countless pre-Incan generations.
