The first edition of The Khipu, October 2014

It’s not by chance we chose to use the name “The Khipu”.  A system of knotted and colour-coded cords, Khipus were used by pre-Columbian peoples in Peru to record information, store data and as an aide to recount stories. At the height of the Inca Empire, Khipus were carried by messengers throughout the Andes along the network of Inca Trails to transmit messages and deliver important communications. Seeing as we are delivering you news direct from the Andean region, we felt it a most fitting metaphor for our own, rather more modern communication channels!

Please do let us know your feedback on the Khipu by leaving a comment below or by writing an email to news@aracari.com.  You can also subscribe to The Khipu by clicking here. We hope you find the Khipu Blog and Newsletter to be as informative as those Khipus themselves…
