Story Behind the Art:
Peruvian artisan Maria Uyauri joined a women's group to learn textile arts. 'At first, we had a lot of problems with materials. We'd create our patchwork wall hangings with old clothes. One day, we got together and decided that with the little bit of money we each could contribute, we could buy bolts of fabric and spools of yarn and thread. With these materials, we created our first pieces to sell. After ten years, I realized it was time to work by myself. Today my husband and son help me.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
