Story Behind the Art:
Peruvian artisan Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate in the 1970s when terrorist activities swept his region. 'I found a job as janitor in a textile factory. I was completely fascinated!' he says. 'At night, when everyone had gone, I began to experiment with the looms. The manager caught me and said I should start by learning how to assemble a loom. That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed on to my children.'
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.

I get lots of compliments on this cloak. It's warm and light weight. The only downside is that it's not 100% alpaca wool, which I must have missed.Read More
This cape is partial acrylic (which I strongly dislike). I truly must learn to read the descriptions more carefully! The cape is not quite as beautiful as I expected. It is good to just toss over your shoulders when you are making a quick run to the grocery store.Read More
I love cloaks from the Peru. I did not keep this one because it was more gray or charcoal than green. I was expecting the green to be more predominant and the garment was not the same length all the way around. The sides were shorter which would let in the weather. Just my taste. But if you don't mind these things the quality is great as u.sual.Read More
