"In contemporary Peruvian society, the indigenous woman is seen as a symbol for textile and labor, falling under the scope of the heavy tourism brought by the remains of the Inca Empire and its culture. These women however, are the keystone for the reinvigoration of the Inca culture back into the modern city of Lima, making them a necessary, but often disregarded asset within the identity of modern Peru. Through the ideals of women empowerment and social innovation, the project would provide a facility for the reintegration of tradition back into the modern needs of the city. These women would then begin to redevelop their social identity, one that does not revolve around tourism alone."
