Peru's Nilda Amaro Oscanoa inherited her art from her ancestors. 'Ever since I can remember, I have seen every one of my relatives weaving: great-grandparents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and brothers,' she recalls. 'That is to say, I grew up amid looms and yarns. I enjoy making Cubist-style designs inspired by our folklore and everyday scenes from my village. I weave with sheep's wool, which I color with natural dyes. On occasion, my mother helps me to design and weave.'What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
