Inspired by the culture of the Andes, Peruvian artisan Luis Leon creates a tapestry that is full of culture. He chooses wool yarns of grey, white, and blue, hand-weaving them against a cotton warp using the llenado technique on a traditional San Pedro loom. Elaborate tassels decorate the tapestry at the bottom.
