'Paracas Fantasy' Alpaca Wool Blanket (Peru)
Isidoro C'cahuantico honors Peru's past with this warm alpaca wool blanket. He replicates the glyphs of the legendary Paracas culture in reversible light blue and green shades. Flourishing in Peru's south coast, Paracas artists excelled at a variety of art forms.
Story Behind the Art:
During the 1970s, Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. Accepting various jobs, he soon found himself working as a janitor in a textile factory. 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. That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed to my children. The two older ones work with me, weaving fine alpaca textiles. My daughter makes the best crochet I have ever seen!'
