Dark waves lap at a crimson sea and stars twinkle in orderly rows on a pair of cushion covers. Working on the Andean handloom, Faustino Maldonado handcrafts the cushion covers in a luxurious alpaca wool blend.
Story Behind the Art: 'My parents and grandparents were artisans,' says Peru's Faustino Maldonado. 'So I learned at an early age to weave on rustic looms, to prepare the warp and spin the wool. Our family motto has been: I will never let go of either my grandfather or grandson's hands, for what I have learned from the elders, I will teach to the young. Based on this family philosophy, our work today represents the art that has been passed down from generation to generation within my family.
