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!' Isidoro recalls. 'I became enamored with the textile arts at first sight. At night, when everyone had gone home, I began to look at the looms and machines and to experiment with them. Some days later, one of the weavers complained his machine was never the way he'd left it the night before. 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 one of the most important and memorable moments in my life.'

I bought this blanket to keep in the car for my elderly father when we go to and from appointments. It is perfect due to its incredible light weight, wonderful softness and instant warming. The quality of the weave and the beautifully detailed edges make this a blanket really stunning. Every time I feel it, it makes me want to curl up with it, a good book and cup of hot chocolate. I spent a lot of time looking for something other than the standard size throw and this fit the bill. It has been an absolute essential for me and my dad this winter. If you want something you can cuddle with and get warm all the way to the bone, this is the blanket you want.Read More
