The executive director of ITP, Mercedes Hair Ines Carazo, said the Puno region has great potential to develop the skill of designing alpaca-made clothing among the local artisans, reported radioondaazul.com.
Mr. Carazo said the designs by the local artisans highlight the Peruvian culture in the alpaca-based garments.
Further, he suggested that the Universidad Nacional del Altiplano (National University of Altipano) should introduce a professional institute for textile and clothing design to enhance the skills of the artisans.
Last month, Consortium Titicaca, a Puno-based business group, announced its intention to set up a textile institute in the Puno region to support the local artisans.
For the purpose, the Consortium requested the regional government to sanction funds and allot land.
The president of Consortium Titicaca, Elena Calatayud, said the textile institute will support the artisans who were earlier trained by the companies associated with business group to make quality garments out of alpaca, pima cotton and other fabrics.
