Artisan: Isidoro C'cahuantico

Artisan Isidoro C'cahuantico

During the 1970s, Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. Accepting various jobs, 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, when everyone had gone home, I began to look at the looms and machines and to experiment with them. Some days later, one of the weavers complained his machine was never the way he'd left it the night before. 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 one of the most important and memorable moments in my life!

"That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed to my children. The two older ones work with me, weaving fine alpaca textiles. My daughter makes the best crochet I have ever seen!"
