Artisan: Yurivilca Family

Artisan Yurivilca Family

In his hometown, the name "Yurivilca" shines brightly, yet it is the name of Don César Yurivilca that truly resonates. Don César is a pioneer in the field, choosing to take a different path and inventing the tapiz relleno. Local weavers now follow his technique to achieve a visual impact similar to that which a painter creates on canvas.

"The influence comes from my family and from my hometown. All I've learned has come from practice, I've never received any kind of schooling in weaving. I am always seeking to develop new forms and styles.

"This field gives me great spiritual satisfaction, especially when I teach the new generation. I hope that I can leave behind a tradition where people from my hometown can always depend on weaving to make a living. In fact, we've formed a type of community with my children teaching young children what I've taught them.

"All of my weaves contain traditional aspects of my town and Peruvian culture in general. I use sheep's wool and cotton, natural as well as industrial dyes. My primary tool is the loom, and the process consists of applying the relleno technique, to ensure a compact and precise product.

"During my career I have received many awards and prizes, including the designation of Grand Master, but nothing satisfies me more than the love I receive from my fellow countrymen."
