In the shadow of Ecuador’s Imbabura volcano in the small hillside village of Peguche, in the north of Ecuador, fine weaving traditions pass from generation to generation. People here have been weavers since pre-Incan times. In colonial days, their skills resulted in many of them being forced into "obrejas" (textile workshops), creating a textile trade that continues freely today.
