Peruvian textiles have an incredibly rich tradition, with pre-Incan museums all around the country featuring beautiful textiles. In Paracas, the textile art is considered exquisite and delicate. Dating from around 600 BC these textiles were used to wrap mummies, in layer after layer of ornate and finely woven textiles.
