Details

This breathtaking Ayacucho rug comes from Cerapio Vallejo. This amazing craft has been around for centuries in the state of Ayacucho, having been passed down to the Incas after originating among the ancient Wari culture of Peru. Vallejo's preferred technique, called kilin, is characterized by a tight weave. Although extra fabric and 15 days of hard work are required for such rugs, the end result is an extraordinarily clear illustration. Vallejo achieves the rich colors in the rug by using natural dyes.

Titled "Colibrí" in Spanish.

"Beautiful"

I am looking at this rug as I type. Its very, very beautiful. The quality is superb. Ive had this rug for three years now and expect to have this rug for the rest of my life. One tip: buy one of those clear plastic rug-savers if you have a desk chair on it.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

At a time when Cerapio was barely able to support his family he discovered Novica and Novica's shoppers discovered him. His life changed. He was able to buy a new house, turn his old house into his workshop and educate his children. He continues to hire and train other artisans and has helped many of them to build their own workshops. He loves the recognition his work has found and the security it has brought his family. If you ever meet him, he will proudly tell you that he is the first member of his family to buy a car.

Cerapio learned to weave from his father and grandfather. He draws inspiration from Peruvian culture and the Andean village life that he shared while growing up in Ayacucho. He treasures the art of weaving and the opportunities it has given him to preserve this centuries-old Peruvian tradition by teaching it to other artisans.

Cerapio supported the studies of his three children, two of whom are already married and have families of their own. There is one left in school, Cerapio is by far proud of supporting his children, and he did it because of his art.

Cerapio Vallejo has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1350 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to purchase cotton and wool to continue production.

Cerapio prides himself on being able to employ other artisans. For years he has hired skilled weavers to help with his orders and unskilled workers eager to learn the weaving arts.
