Telar: Traditional Argentinian weaving

This is a bag my mum made for me in 2007 using traditional Argentinian, it is called telar in spanish and is a traditional weaving from the mapuche people of southern Chile and Argentina. It is made from wool spun by hand and dyed by hand.
My mother is doing another course in telar and practically taught herself. I miss her very much.
