Isidoro C'cahuantico was born near Cuzco, Peru. During the 1970s he was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. He found himself working as a janitor in a textile factory. 'I was fascinated with their work!' Isidoro recalls. 'I became enamored with the textile arts. At night, when everyone had gone home and I was left alone, I began to look at the looms and machines and to experiment with them. Some days later, one of the weavers complained that his machine was never the way he'd left it the night before. The owner was surprised to learn that the culprit was me! She said if I really wanted to learn, I should learn to assemble one of the spare looms. That was one of the most important and memorable moments in my life! My curiosity led me into the world of textiles, looms and weaves. That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift, that I have now also passed to my children.
