Peruvian artisan Eliazar Ochoa was born in Ayacucho. 'Weaving runs through my veins. I grew up amid looms and yarns; my family has worked at weaving for several generations and I used to help my parents. Now I have my own family and workshop, but I constantly remember how it was learning from my parents. They made me the man I am today, confident of what I can do with my own hands,' he says. 'I am inspired by Inca colors and patterns and I work with natural wool.'The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design and sizing. Subtle variations will occur from piece to piece, adding to its unique qualities. Measurements may vary slightly.ImportedShips Carbon Neutral*
