Otavalo Indian Market
North of Quito is the Otavalo Market, where descendants
of the Incas and other indigenous people sell weavings to
tourists. This woman had a variety of designs to offer.
A classic colorful weaving of how indigenous people
dress in Ecuador, with their hats and a rainbow of
clothes in different shades.
This weaving for sale at Otavalo presents a highlands
Indian village with the Andes in the background.
I met Jose, one of the master weavers, shown here at
his workshop surrounded by the art he creates.
