Notes: 
The material probably, made from Llama wool fibers (South American camel), is woven with unique technique, designs and drawings which are taken from Asian and Middle East kilims. These kilims also used as coverlets . From point of quality view, Lama’s fibers are finer and tinier than sheep wools . They are not smeared with any kind of wool fat (lanolin-existing animal fat on the sheep skins). The technique in Peruvian Kilims is using pairs and parallel warps and weft . Its designs and drawings are created by weaving the colored woofs between cream colored wraps. This weaving technique is the same as technique that is applied in weaving Mexican Poncho and it is also similar to Iranian Jajim .
