Story Behind the Art:
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.'

The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
