Excerpt from Introduction: "The textile tradition of highland Bolivia is a rich and highly developed art with roots reaching back to pre-colombian times. Yet this remarkable tradition has gone largely unrecognized outside of the Bolivian rural regions where weaving is still the most important form of creative expression." From the private library of Whitney Chadwick and Robert Bechtle.
