My biggest challenge is to bring you my designs, show you my colors and tell you about our history, of which I feel very proud."
"I was born on 27 September, 1972 in Ayacucho. Weaving runs through my veins. I grew up amid looms and wefts since my family has been dedicated to weaving for several generations. I used to help my parents in the little rustic workshop they used to have. We faced a lot of hardships, but we managed to pull through. I had to work in other workshops, which actually made me learn more about different details and such.
"Now I have my own family and in 1980 I opened my own workshop, but I constantly remember how it was learning from my parents. They made me the man I am today, confident of what I can do with my own hands.
"My art requires dedication. I am inspired by Inca colors and patterns and I work with natural wool. I am motivated by a desire to show the whole wide world our Peruvian culture. I want people to get to know about the quality of life in our villages through our art, designs, culture and the richness of our creations.
"My biggest challenge is to bring you my designs, show you my colors and tell you about our history, of which I feel very proud. I have a deep love for my people, so now I feel responsible of offering you products of the highest quality. Each piece I weave carries the best of me for you. Gracias! "
