Artisan: Efrain Curi

Artisan Efrain Curi

Born in the state of Huancavelica, Efrain Curi first learned the flat weave technique in his uncle's workshop, in what is a family craft. Finding words to express his thoughts and ideas is difficult for Curi since his first language is Quechua, but he speaks eloquently through his work.

He prefers natural fibers such as wool and cotton tinted with natural and artificial dyes. His tool is the handloom and he usually weaves in the company of his family. The children find it fun to help out, and Curi hopes to eventually teach them all he knows about weaving.

He has exhibited his work and won prizes for it in contests such as one organized by a wool company, where he took first place in 2000 and second place in 2001.

"I have put a great deal of effort to being where I am today," he says. "My goal is to become recognized as a master weaver, but that will take many more years. I feel appreciation for everything I make. I pause to observe my work to know if I am improving or not."
