During the 1970s, Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. He soon 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, I looked at the looms and machines and experimented with them. 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 if I really wanted to learn, I should learn to assemble one of the spare looms in the warehouse. That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed to my children.'

This Throw was a Perfect Gift
After looking for several weeks for the perfect wedding gift to send to a young couple in Belgium, I came across this Paracas Fantasy Alpaca Wool Throw Blanket made in Peru. While the picture was very nice, I was hesitant to order the throw because of it being imported. I eventually ordered it and while it took a while to arrive, it was well worth the wait. The workmanship was impeccable, the colors were beautiful, and overall it could not have been a more perfect gift. I sent it off to the newlyweds and when they received it, they were overwhelmed and much appreciative. Thank you Overstock for providing such a quality product.Read More
