But first learn about appraisal textiles. Learn about the Inca textile of sun dancers, Inca Hat and Coptic Textiles.
The 1700 Inca Textile from Peru which is normally very dry and never rains wich leading to such textiles lasting for a long time. Coptic textiles are woven as a piece of clothing with Greek and Egypt designs.
A 1000-1500 year old Inca Textile hats woven with lama hair. The principal colors used in Inca textiles were black, white, green, yellow, orange, purple, and red. These colors came from natural dyes which were extracted from plants, minerals, insects, and molluscs. Hundreds of additional color shades were made from mixing the base palette of pigments. . The Incas favored abstract geometric designs, especially checkerboard motifs, which repeated patterns across the surface of the cloth. Certain patterns may also have been ideograms and carried a specific meaning, but the issue continues to be debated by scholars. Non-geometrical subjects, often rendered in abstract form, included felines (especially jaguars and pumas), llamas, snakes, birds, sea creatures, and plants.
It seems that both men and women created textiles, but it was a skill women of all classes were expected to be accomplished at. The principal equipment was the back strap loom for smaller pieces and either the horizontal single-heddle loom or vertical loom with four poles for larger pieces, such as rugs and blankets. Spinning was done with a drop spindle, typically in ceramic or wood. Inca textiles were made using cotton or llama, alpaca, and vicuña wool which can be exceptionally fine. Goods made using the super-soft vicuña wool were restricted and only the Inca ruler could own vicuña herds.
