Last Sunday there was an exhibition of the artisan work developed by Achacachi embroiders. Achacachi is a an aymara town located one hour and a half from El Alto. This town is well known by the artisan work of the local embroiders. For years they have been making costumes for folk dances such as morenada. The first picture correspond to the Achacachi embroiders, who learned to embroid extraordinary custumes from their fathers and at the same time they teach to their sons to continue with this job. The second picture is part of the type of embroidery they make.
