    Story Behind the Art:

    During the 1970s, Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. He found work as a janitor in a textile factory. 'I was completely fascinated with the work they were doing,' Isidoro recalls. 'I became enamored with the textile arts at first sight. At night, when everyone had gone home, I began to look at the looms and to experiment with them. Some days later, one of the weavers complained his machine was never the way he'd left it the night before. The owner asked who kept adjusting the loom, and was surprised to learn the culprit was me! When she asked why I was using the loom, I replied that I wanted to learn. She said if I really wanted to learn, I should learn to assemble one of the spare looms in the warehouse. That was one of the most important moments in my life. It was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed to my children.'

  • Magical Warmth!!

    This is true luxury, if you have ever had bone-chilling temps, there is nothing that can warm you up as fast as alpaca's fleece can. Light as air, but toasty warm as hot soup. Every car should have 1 or 2 of these, for Winter survival.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Alpaca fleece(wool) is as light as dandelion fluff, soft as cashmere, and oh so very warm, without heavy weight. There is nothing lke it!
    • How accurate was the sizing? Good, It would be nice for a little extra length/width, because my husband is tall. But for the price, it canNOT be beat.
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
