    Story Behind the Art:

    Peruvian artisan Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate in the 1970s when terrorist activities swept his region. 'I found a job as janitor in a textile factory. I was completely fascinated!' he says. 'At night, when everyone had gone, I began to experiment with the looms. The manager caught me and said I should start by learning how to assemble a loom. That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed on to my children.'

    • too small

      Love the quality & everythingabout it except the size I got for the price I paid. If I had it to do over, I would have either bought a bigger size, or not bought it at all because seventy bucks is just too much for a baby-blanket sized throw.The product itself is fabulous, though :-)
