Story Behind the Art:

During the 1970s, Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. 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, I looked at the looms and machines and experimented with them. The owner asked who kept adjusting the loom, and was surprised to learn the culprit was me! 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 the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed to my children.'

The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design and sizing. Subtle variations will occur from piece to piece, adding to its unique qualities. Measurements may vary slightly.

    This blanket was well made. However, I did not like the pattern. I could not tell from the picture that the pattern is of some sort of diety. When I unfolded it, the picture of this little guy is repeated throughout the entire blanket. it is not a pleasant picture. He was actually a little scary looking. I could not give this as a gift. I did not know what the picture was, but it was obviously some sort of little god. We are Christians and this definitley would be inappropriate to own. If the pattern had been geometric shapes, or even squiggly lines, I would have kept the bllanket. But, I had to return it. The return was easy.

  • Smaller than expected
    Verified Purchase

    The fabric is lovely but the throw blanket is so small it is really useless. You cannot curl up in it or even cover your legs on the sofa. I wound up tossing it on a chair to use for accent color, but not function.
