Durability & Care

Due to the tightness of the handspun wool and the high lanolin content, the rugs require little care. The lanolin functions as a stain and spill retardant. They can be placed in a high traffic entry and they also look great on the wall. They are completely reversible and machine washable.

Maximo LauraMaximo Laura is one of South America’s most accomplished weavers. Laura is a fifth-generation master weaver who inherited from his parents and grandparents – all master weavers from Ayacucho, Peru – the traditional style of ancient weaving called cumbimayocs. But while he is ultimately respectful of the iconography and colors of the ancient Huari culture (which predates the Inca culture), it is his juxtaposition of those traditions with his own design elements and narrative that have earned him many international awards, distinctions and exhibits.

Maximo has taken the tapestry weave to a different level. He is constantly enhancing his unique technique of raising the weft to create incredible depth to his tapestries. Maximo is a scholar of textile art and has traveled the world exploring and teaching in his field. ArtAndes has worked closely with Maximo Laura for many years and is proud to represent his works at the Northrup King studio in Minneapolis.

 

 

Contemporary tapestries

Maximo Laura’s tapestries are full of vision, ritual, and Pre-Colombian myth. These pieces are an experience, a collision between the traditional and the contemporary. The iconographic language is authentically Peruvian. These technical pieces are woven with alpaca and have a different price structure. Contact us for individual prices.
