Pachamama Purse Pattern
  0 customer reviews

The purse, popular in Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia, is knit to represent Pachamama. Small campesinos traditionally sewn into her skirt are symbolic of how the Andean people are the offspring of the Pachamama and originate from her womb, the earth. It is in her care they find food and shelter, and in the end they return to her womb for their final rest.
