YURIVILCA FAMILY BAGS
The handmade flower bags are weaved by Don César Yurivilca and his family from the outskirt of Lima, Peru. The Yurivilca family originally from Ayacucho (Andean region of Peru), have a long history of weaving- his parents and grandparents were all weavers.

"All that I've learned has come from practice, for I have never received any kind of schooling in the art of weaving. I am always seeking to develop new forms and styles for my art. This field gives me great spiritual satisfaction, especially when I am able to teach the new generation of weavers. I hope that I can leave behind an informal schooling tradition whereby people from my hometown can always depend on weaving to make a living. I am proud of my sons who are teaching the children of our village the art of weaving." - Don César Yurivilca
