Evoking a set of steps that lead to the top of an Andean temple, this geometric tapestry is designed by Peruvian artisan Luis Leon. He works on a traditional San Pedro loom, hand-weaving brown and white wool yarns against a cotton warp using a technique known as llenado. Fringes with an ombre design complete the tapestry at the bottom.
