Peruvian artisan Alfredo Falcon says, 'When I was but a small child I learned from my parents the best weaving techniques – like me, they had learned from their own parents. This makes us a family entirely devoted to the world of textiles, and we have been for generations. Nowadays I combine weaving by hand and on classic machinery, remaining true to Inca and colonial motifs.'What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
