Working on a traditional San Pedro loom, Peruvian artisan Luis Leon creates a fascinating tapestry to add an Andean spirit to your home decor. He chooses earth-tone wool yarns, hand-weaving it against a cotton warp using a technique known as llenado. The striped tapestry is completed by hand with white fringes at the bottom.
