Artisan: Patricia Anaya

Artisan Patricia Anaya

"I was born in Cuzco in 1960, and I grew up in a very interesting home environment because my mother, who was a literature teacher, loved Peruvian art. She was always helping artists in the San Blas neighborhood, especially those specializing in textiles, since our family owned a weaving workshop. On the other hand, my father, who was a chemical engineer, was always teaching me the scientific approach to the origins of life, and so on.

"In 1993 I began to run our family workshop. Our specialties are alpaca wool weaves with a distinct Peruvian accent, elegantly influenced by today's fashion sense.

"I am interested in sharing my good fortune with others, especially with people who are physically challenged, and unwed teenage mothers. I teach them in the areas of textiles and general education. My vision is for all of us to grow together through this small family enterprise, offering our art and sharing our knowledge."
