Story Behind the Art:

During the 1970s, Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. He found work as a janitor in a textile factory. 'I was completely fascinated with the work they were doing,' Isidoro recalls. 'I became enamored with the textile arts at first sight. At night, when everyone had gone home, I began to look at the looms and to experiment with them. Some days later, one of the weavers complained his machine was never the way he'd left it the night before. The owner asked who kept adjusting the loom, and was surprised to learn the culprit was me! When she asked why I was using the loom, I replied that I wanted to learn. She said 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 moments in my life. It was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed to my children.'

  • Warm

    I love this throw. If you are looking for something large however, this should not be your choice.It is soft and warm and clearly authentic. The neutral colors and it's appeal make it perfect for hanging over a chair in your bedroom, at the foot of the bed or over the sofa in your living room.As far as I am concerned it was well worth the money. I love it.My only criticism would be that I wish it were a tad larger.
