The Senkapa SUNNYCORDS® are handcrafted by local women in the village of Ccatcca in the region of Cuzco of the magical Peruvian highlands. The weaving was done by four women of varying ages from different families of the same weaving community. The weaving tradition is passed on from generation to generation in native communities. We work almost directly with the weaving communities themselves to ensure that they receive a fair price for their work. The environment in which they work is their very own communities; at home, outside, wherever they choose.

The material they use for the SUNNYCORDS® is wool and the tool and technique is called the backstrap loom in which one side is tied to a tree or post when weaving and the other side has a strap that goes around the waist. The weaver is normally sitting on the ground while working.

By buying one of the Senkapa's you support the local women in Peru.

The Maya Sunnycord is woven with the colors blue, pink and white.
