    This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.  Smooth lines set in colorful geometry distinguish the art of the Wari people and inspires the work of the Maldonado Family.

    Story Behind the Art:

     Faustino Maldonado was born in Hualhuas. Because his parents and grandparents were artisans, he learned at an eary age to weave on rustic looms, to prepare the warp using the pushca, and spin on the rueca. Since he first started weaving, Maldonado has mastered the art and has immensely improved the quality of his textiles. Maldonado's work is a representation of the art that has been passed down from generation to generation within his family. The family motto has been, "I will never let go of either my grandfather or grandson's hands, for what I have learned from the elders, I will teach to the young." Based on this family philosophy, Maldonado and his relatives have been making large bedspreads in high relief without any stitching. They also proudly craft sheep wool and alpaca tapestries, purses, backpacks, cushions, and vests. The Maldonado family's works have become increasingly popular.

    • Pretty but Very uncomfortable texture
      Verified Purchase

      First I couldn't find a cushion to properly fit into the covers, they were so small. Then the material is so prickly that most folks fling the cushions away when they want to sit down.
