Wool runner, 'Highland Sunset' (2x5)
The Peruvian sunset shines its captivating colors on this rug, its wondrous spectrum infused with rustic allure. Cerapio Vallejo's traditional artistry finds new expression: "I like to experiment and vary my production so they may suit new types of architecture and colors." For the líneas (lines) series, Vallejo blends the weaving techniques first introduced by his Wari ancestors (600 - 1000 CE) with a contemporary allure in an admirable harmonization of past and present.

Artisan: Cerapio Vallejo
Cerapio Vallejo's artistry has been featured in many periodicals, including Business Week, Sunset magazine, and the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as on PBS Television. "My art form was handed down to me from my parents and grandparents. But the quality of my work is the result of my long experience and the product of my careful observation over the years. I draw inspiration from our ancient Peruvian cultures, Andean village life, and from our snow-capped mountains.
"I have faced many challenges during my life, and I have learned from them. Perhaps the most difficult was when I was obliged to leave my house in Ayacucho with my family. I had to make this painful decision because there was no other way. This was during the 1980s, when terrorism was bleeding my people to death and there seemed little hope.
"Artisans in my region were considerably affected when tourism halted. Even now that Ayacucho is at peace, we remain in our city home; we created a new life here, and are thankful that Ayacucho is flourishing and we can visit it."
