Taquile Island is located on the Peruvian side of Lake Titicaca. Taquile’s textile arts are well regarded and were declared Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2005. Male Taquileños knit hats, belts, and other items, while women spin and weave. These hats are customarily worn by men and communicate marital status; single men wear white and married men red.
