Details

The Andean sun lends its bright rays to color this attractive tapestry by Raúl Ulloa Baylon. He uses natural dyes to recreate the sun's warm orange and yellow hues as they surround a group of women. Their ornate cloaks blend into each other as they stand spinning wool. They are recreating weaving traditions at a local festival. Ulloa weaves this impressive tapestry on a traditional loom in a style that is exclusive to San Pedro de las Cajas, Peru.

Titled "Festival" in Spanish.

I purchased this and a second tapestry by the same artist for our master bedroom walls. They are as rich and vibrant as I hoped. Beautifully made and well worth the price.

"Stunning"

Where to begin! I am in love with this. The colors, the quality, the energy. I have it in my studio where i do energy work that includes a lot of sound energy. It hangs amongst some clear crystal tools and just makes the space pop. So very pleased.

"Beautiful Piece of Art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Its very soft and foldable. Has weight into it and does not cause any skin itching like some wools do. Has vibrant colors and it feels pretty warm if used as blanket. Its a handmade and authentic product that is presented by its original maker. Were really happy with the purchase. Thank you

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

The San Pedro de Cajas wooden handloom bears the name of the Andean town that for generations has used it to create beautiful weavings. Nearly everyone in the town knows how to weave. San Pedro de Cajas is also Raul Ulloa's hometown. Growing-up there, he learned to weave from his father. Raul treasures his artistic legacy - today in his workshop he uses this same loom and traditional techniques to create contemporary tapestries and accessories that honor the legacy of Peruvian woven cultural treasures.

At the turn of this century when Raul began to work with Novica, he lived and worked in a tiny rented house - fearful that he would be unable to support his wife and newborn child. Today, his Novica sales support his family. He has been able to acquire additional looms, grow his workshop and experience the joy of sending his two children to school.

Raul Ulloa Baylon has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $800 and the most recent for $1400. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of alpaca and sheep wool, his principal materials for production.

Providing his children with the best education possible is Raul's goal. Sending his two children to school brings him joy.

Raul once feared he would be unable to provide for his first child. Today he is able to support his two children.
