Details

Lliklla is the Quechua word for manta, a square piece of cloth formed by joining together two long woven pieces at a center seam. Widths determine its usage and size varies from region to region. Worn as a mantle across the shoulders, a lliklla protects one's back from the cold and can be used to carry all manner of things, including babies. Some are simple sturdy textiles used in agriculture, but for special occasions, they're woven of fine threads with complex designs and vivid colors and embellishments.
