'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.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
