Story Behind the Art:
David Laura Zanabria's grandparents and parents were weavers who inherited this art from their predecessors. 'I essentially learned through observation. Nevertheless I have taken several textile courses. My work focuses on resuscitating our ancestral culture and linking it to the present. I work with my family, and our materials include wool, cotton, and both natural and industrial dyes. For the natural dyes, we cultivate the plants (walnut, tare, molle and alder).'
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.
