This large coca bag is a superb example of a type identified as belonging to the Maitas-Chiribaya Culture of Northern Chile. It dates to a.d. 500 - 1000. It is a very finely woven textile with an amazing handle and desirable color palette found in only a small percentage of of the weavings from the region. See image here of a length of fine German made sewing thread compared to the much finer hand spun yarns of this textile to get the sense of just how fine the two ply the alpaca yarns in this weaving really are. It is a classic Andean warp faced woven bag with complimentary warp patterning. Size:12.5 x 11.5 inches. The bag has been professionally stabilized to a fabric lining for conservation purposes. This group of bags often display a subtly flared shape as seen here. i include images here from one of the few publications to describe this regional culture along with a nicely rendered depiction of the people and costumes of the region. Even considering its slightly rough condition with some discoloration and wear, this is the kind of piece that knowledgable and sophisticated collectors of Andean material will admire for how beautifully woven it is and for how it ranks within in the group of such weavings. Priced very well considering its status and beautiful weave.
