This informative documentary examines warp pattern weaving in Peru, an ancient Andean Indian tradition handed down from woman to woman for some 5,000 years.

The film features a detailed demonstration of the warp pattern technique on back-strap and four-stake looms by Indian weavers and an interview with Dr. Junius Bird, of the American Museum of Natural History, who discusses this weaving tradition and analyzes significant examples.

"Peruvian Weaving" will enhance numerous courses in cultural anthropology, Latin American and Andean studies, women's studies, and the arts and humanities. It was produced by renowned filmmaker and musician John Cohen.
