Story Behind the Art: Nestor Yana hails from Peru's Puno region renowned for quality alpaca and sheep wool. When he first began to weave, he worked on the rustic looms he built along with other family members. They sold their wares at local markets until they were able to acquire modern machinery, which in turn allowed them to develop newer designs.
