By Peru's David Laura Zanabria, this dazzling tapestry takes its inspiration from the sunflowers that abound in his homeland. He works in virgin wool, adding neat raised borders in high relief around the petals. Fringe finishes the signature piece, and a display rod can be slipped through a hem at the top.
Titled "Sumac Huayta" (Pretty Flower) in Quechua.
David Laura Zanabria has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $400 and the most recent for $600. Proceeds were used to purchase additional wool and dyes for his weaving business.
