The textile development of the Colca Valley occurs in this context. The use of camelid fibers, such as alpaca and llama, is maintained, along with the use of sheep's wool. The use of "Awana" type fabric and waist fabrics to make traditional fabrics survives. The Hispanic pedal fabrics or vertical loom is used to make extensive fabrics.

According to older weavers, sewing machines arrived in the Colca Valley in the 1940s, being the first crank and then pedal. Today, with the semi-industrial sewing machine, faster is achieved and implements are available that allow the embroiderer to use wool or cotton threads, such as industrial yarns.
