Inca textile

This earthy-coloured Inca textile made over 500 years ago is significant in many ways. It has been woven using brown, green, yellow and black cotton threads with simple geometric shapes in the design.
The colours have faded with the light and the textile has loose threads but is special to my family because it is unique and the cloth is very old.
