Pachalina from the Kichwa folk

We are happy to receive this Pachalina - black shawl with white edging is hand made of the alpaca wool. It is worn exclusively by aged women of the Kichwa. Secures the head from wind and frost in the high Andes, and the style of wearing may differ from the mood or current occupation of the woman. Ecuador, 20th cent.
