Story Behind the Art:

Isidoro C'cahuantico was born in a village near Cuzco. During the 1970s he was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. He found himself working as a janitor in a textile factory. 'I was fascinated with the work they were doing!' Isidoro recalls. 'At night, when everyone had gone home and I was left alone, I began to look at the looms and machines and experiment with them. Some days later, one of the weavers complained that his machine was never the way he'd left it the night before. The owner asked why I was using the loom, and I replied that I wanted to learn to weave. She said that 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 and memorable moments in my life! My two older children work with me, weaving fine alpaca textiles.'

  • quality scarf

    A quality product for a reasonable price. The weave has just enough body, not flimsy or stiff. The paper that the scarf was wrapped in was plain and inexpensive , and obviously hand packed and sealed, which added to the romance of purchasing from Worldstock artisans . No factory/assembly line work here!
