Details

Cerapio Vallejo depicts row after row of mountains in tribute to his Andean homeland. Vallejo's preferred weaving technique, called kilin, is characterized by the uses of small, straight stitches. Although extra fabric and 15 days of hard work are required for kilin-produced rugs, the end result is an extraordinarily clear illustration. Vallejo achieves the rug's rich colors by using natural dyes.

Titled "Puesta de sol" in Spanish.

"Fantastic quality, colour and proportion"

The rug "Sunset" is simply gorgeous. The knotting, the colouring, the layout of the imagery, the dimensions - everything is perfect. I travel a lot and have acquired rugs/carpets in many countries. This piece is beautiful and a great value. Sr. Vallejo is very talented.

Incredibly well made mini-tapestries. The colors just pop. So beautiful. These placemats add beauty to our table all day long. And by candlelight they just glow. We love them!

"Art work for placemats!"

The artistry is stunning. We have two sets (different patterns) of four each, and they mix/match very well. Vibrant, rich colors. Highly recommend!

Moving On Up

Moving On Up

At a time when Cerapio was barely able to support his family he discovered Novica and Novica's shoppers discovered him. His life changed. He was able to buy a new house, turn his old house into his workshop and educate his children. He continues to hire and train other artisans and has helped many of them to build their own workshops. He loves the recognition his work has found and the security it has brought his family. If you ever meet him, he will proudly tell you that he is the first member of his family to buy a car.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

Cerapio learned to weave from his father and grandfather. He draws inspiration from Peruvian culture and the Andean village life that he shared while growing up in Ayacucho. He treasures the art of weaving and the opportunities it has given him to preserve this centuries-old Peruvian tradition by teaching it to other artisans.

Enabling Education

Enabling Education

Cerapio supported the studies of his three children, two of whom are already married and have families of their own. There is one left in school, Cerapio is by far proud of supporting his children, and he did it because of his art.

Microcredit Financing

Microcredit Financing

Cerapio Vallejo has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1350 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to purchase cotton and wool to continue production.

Job Creator
