Keeping Ancient Arts Alive (Peguche, Ecuador)

During our recent vacation in Ecuador, I had the opportunity to visit a workshop where the traditional art of wool weaving by hand is still practiced.  This is the Artesanía el Gran Condor in Peguche, a village a few minutes from Otavalo, the market town two hours north of Quito.  I took some stills and some video and have had the pleasure of cobbling together a short (3-minute) video about the place.  You can see it on YouTube or here.
