arpillera art quilts

arpillera art quilts

Each arpillera bears the distinctive "thumbprint" of one of the 22 self-taught woman artists who made it; their personal vision for a perfect garden, tree of life, or a day at the market is captured by hand-stitching recycled pieces of fabric into astonishing 3D textile art. See what 15 years of close collaboration between designer Alessandra Bravo and our Peruvian artists has created. New! See the actual arpillera wall quilts we have in stock. We have posted photos of the large and medium sizes on flickr so you can choose your favorite!
