Peruvian artisan Zosimo Laura comes from a family of weavers in Ayacucho, renowned for its handicrafts. Like his grandparents and brothers, has works on a traditional handloom. Forced to abandon Ayacucho due to turmoil and violence, Zosimo and his family moved to an urban center where they faced innumerable obstacles. Nonetheless, his dedication has allowed him to succeed. His goal is to teach his children the textile art when they are old enough.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
