With exuberant colors and a wild variety of products, fruits, veggies, this Peruvian market is an invitation to explore! Dig in to discover “zapallos” squash, "papas" potatoes, “aji” hot peppers, "platanos" bananas, or maybe a juicy “sandia” watermelon? Also, don’t forget to try on that fancy skirt and why not get also a piece of that authentic fabric that caught your eye! Arpillera Process: artists first patch together a landscape background using mostly cotton fabrics. Next they draw, cut and stitch in the animals, little 3-D characters, vegetables, fruits, other goodies, then embroidery adds the final touches. After the piece is done, a back cotton cloth is stitched to give it body. Recycled Creativity: this 3D arpillera was creatively hand-stitched by Anselma as a one-of-a-kind, using up-cycled left over scraps of fabrics from the textile industry. This textile art piece is the result of years of collaborative effort between top Peruvian arpillera artists and Lucuma Designs’ designers. Photo: as each piece is always unique, we will confirm that the piece you see here is the actual piece we have on hand and that you will receive before shipping. Hanging: this museum quality 3D arpillera or textile art piece has a pocket for a rod for easy hanging. Or we suggest you consider having it professionally framed.
