According to historians, the people of Willoq, with their traditional red ponchos and shawls, are the direct descendants of the last rulers of imperial Cusco, and remain today one of the Andean communities least affected by Western influence. The Willoq community is also well known for its weavers and the quality of its textiles - still a product of patience, knowledge and the skilled weaver. The primitive back strap loom, unaltered for centuries, is still used to weave even the finest textiles.
