It first appeared during the old pre-ceramic period about 2.000 B. , right after man mastered cotton and fiber. The most important remains of textiles are those left by Wari and Paracas cultures.
The techniques used by the Wari culture (located Northeast of Ayacucho) were absorbed by the Incas and later by the Spaniards who arrived in the 15th century. Currently, the most commonly used fibers for fabrics in Peruvian highlands, in the Puno, Cusco, Huancavelica, Ayacucho and Junin regions, are alpaca, vicuña, llama and sheep, among others.
