Inti Illimani
     
 

Inti Illimani is a microenterprise that was founded 28 years ago by Mr. Choque's parents. He is the current chief of the family business and today employs seven artisans, including some members of the family and other outside employees.

Mrs. Lourdes Choque, Mr. Choque's wife, is a weaver from a town called Huari where the wool is processed and prepared, then later sold to artisan weavers. She has been familiar with this typical material from the Andean Altiplano since her childhood.

The workshop is equipped with traditional plain looms to prepare the products manufactured by the artisans. Many products are also made completely by hand.

Inti Illimani has been working with Caserita for six years. The weavers generate a wide range of products, all from wool: sweaters, caps, gloves, scarves, shawls and pillowcases, home accessories and rugs.

The rug designs created in the Inti Illimani workshop are inspired by Andean Pre-Colombian civilizations, especially the Inca and Kollasuyo civilizations.

Inti Illimani also works with leather and sells bags that combine leather and traditional Andean textiles. You can find many high-quality and very original products from this workshop on our webpage: Caserita.com.
