Q'ero watana beaded strands are used to tie mesa bundles. Q'ero women also use them as hat straps that fall below the chin. Many westerners use these strands of beads as bracelets, necklaces or home decor.
Each strand is handmade by individual weavers in their remote highland homes. Your purchase helps Q'ero families remain in their traditional villages where they can preserve their special Q'ero culture.
