This paper gives a reading of Andean textiles as documentary repositories concerning tributary relations in the past, and the traces that these relations have left in textile terminology and weaving practice today. It argues that textiles as documents record the activities of households, gendered persons and institutions in this web of tributary relations, as well as systematizing information on production, productive resources, and productive patterns.
