Story Behind the Art:

During the 1970s, Isidoro C'cahuantico found himself working 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 machines 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 that I should learn to assemble one of the spare looms in the warehouse. That was one of the most important and memorable moments in my life! That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed to my children.

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.

  • Beautiful and soft

    This blanket is very beautiful and soft. The quality is excellent. The colors and design are very fine. My only negative comment is that it is a bit thin. I use it for reading and fold it in half over my lap for added warmth.
