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. 'I was completely fascinated with the work they were doing. I became enamored with the textile arts at first sight.' At night, I began to look at the looms and machines and experiment with them. Some days later, one of the weavers complained his machine was never the way he'd left it, and the owner 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 I could assemble one of the spare looms in the warehouse. That was one of the most important and memorable moments in my life, the beginning of my vocation, which I later passed to my children.'

    I collect blankets (Pendleton, Hudson's Bay) but don't get too cozy with wool. This blanket is different. I use it in my living room and everyone loves the look and feel.

    Verified Purchase

    My only complaint is that I did not buy more than one. It is soft as cashmere and lightweight pure wool. I have it on my sofa by the fireplace and it is very luxurious. I intend to buy another if it is still available.

    I have a black and white theme in one room and needed a bed covering. This blanket is large enough to serve as a spread. It is lightweight, warm, and adds a folk art interest to the decor. I am very pleased with the purchase.
