That the Taquille men and women wear are functional as well. They are woven by the women and are for lumbar support due to the large loads they often carry on their backs. They use slings that they tie around in the front. I saw a woman walking with the sling full, a large sack of potatoes on her shoulders, and a bag in each hand and she seemed to be doing it with ease!
