Ancash Fields of Sunflowers
1m x 1m (39.4 in x 39.4 in)
This stunning wall hanging was handmade by Leonor Quispe in Lima, Peru. Here's what she has to say about her work:
"When I was a girl, I loved to make doll clothes. I'd spin wool from our sheep to make tiny dresses and many other things. When I discovered the art of arpilleria, I realized this is what I'd always wanted to do."
"For as long as I can remember, I've liked to craft things. Besides, necessity forced me to be creative. I realized that I could express my creativity with every scrap of fabric and bring my memories of Ayacucho to life. My work is quite painstaking, but filled with love and the traditions, culture and history of the Peruvian Andes."
All of our wall hangings include a built-in channel at the back for easy display.
