By 1980 together me Mario Palomino and my wife Paula installed a workshop with three wooden looms on the town San Pedro de Cajas – Tarma. We started to weave tapestries from alpaca wool and, dye with herbs, tree’s barks, Insects (Cochinilla) to get indelible colors , designs such as portraits, Inca traditions and abstracts. these items were used on wall ornament, in Offices, houses, churchs, on the hall of convention centers, etc.
After five years by 1985 we moved to San Miguel- Lima, a team of 5 masters to produce items. Later, we have expanded new category to produce alpaca wool clothing.
We have been supplier to exporter companies in Peru until 1999.
