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.'

  • For show only - thin, but attractive

    Awfully thin. More of a "throw" rather than a blanket. But pattern is excellent!

  • Ad misleading

    The ad states the content as 50% acrylic, 50% wool. The actual content as read from the label is 60% acrylic, 40% wool.
