Old Bolivian Aymara
Quechua Indian Coca Bag

This is a beautiful traditional sacred coca bag called a Tari or chuspa from the Orura area of the Bolivian Andes. The Aymara/Quechua cultures use these bags for the collection and carrying of the sacred coca leaf. The pouch has been finely hand woven with sheep and llama wool and features wonderful ancient imagery of the sacred llama and horse and riders. The coca bag is in good used condition. Framed, or displayed, this is a beautiful bag for any textile collection!

Measurement: Approx. 12" x 9" without
the strap
