Story Behind the Art:
'I entered the wonderful world of textiles just by watching my parents. I was fascinated!' exclaims Peru's Wilmer Vilchez. 'I learned from them gradually, and I set up my own workshop when I felt ready. I describe my art like I do my feelings, that is, I weave how I feel when I'm designing, and I use colors and different types of weaves to convey how I feel, the happiness in my heart. My motivation comes from my deep love towards this art, to what I do, and you can see it through the dedication and effort I put into every piece.'
