"My biggest challenge is to bring you my designs, show you my colors and tell you about our history, of which I feel very proud."
"I was born on 27 September, 1972 in Ayacucho. Weaving runs through my veins. I grew up amid looms and wefts since my family has been dedicated to weaving for several generations. I used to help my parents in the little rustic workshop they used to have. We faced a lot of hardships, but we managed to pull through. I had to work in other workshops, which actually made me learn more about different details and such.
"Now I have my own family and in 1980 I opened my own workshop, but I constantly remember how it was learning from my parents. They made me the man I am today, confident of what I can do with my own hands.
"My art requires dedication. I am inspired by Inca colors and patterns and I work with natural wool. I am motivated by a desire to show the whole wide world our Peruvian culture. I want people to get to know about the quality of life in our villages through our art, designs, culture and the richness of our creations.
"My biggest challenge is to bring you my designs, show you my colors and tell you about our history, of which I feel very proud. I have a deep love for my people, so now I feel responsible of offering you products of the highest quality. Each piece I weave carries the best of me for you. Gracias! "
9 Testimonials for Eliazar Ochoa
Ordered a couple of textiles from this artist. Patterns and colors are beautiful. The weave is nice and tight, and looks great hanging on the wall of my post and beam home. Each textile arrived promptly, and were nicely gift wrapped. Highly recommend.
I felt an immediate connection to Eliazar when I noticed that his birthday (Sept 27) was the same as my youngest son, and his birth year (1972) was the same as my oldest son. It seemed to be a sign that I was supposed to support him. 'Blue Birds on the Wing' certainly did not disappoint. It is beautiful! The craftsmanship is extraordinary and I know I will enjoy this rug for years to come. Thank you!!!
I purchased a throw pillow, ""Golden Surf"", from Eliazar Ochoa, and it is just beautiful, and very well made. It is a piece of art, as all of the items I buy on Novica are! You would not be able to find anything this beautiful searching local stores. Everything I've purchased on Novica looks as good, and usually better than it appears on the website. You do not get THAT kind of surprised very often! The shipping is extremely reasonable, and I always choose the fastest. My order arrives in just a few days, beautifully presented in gorgeous gift wrap, with little insert booklets, and bios. Even the paper they use for the wrapping and the cards is high quality. It really makes a difference and enhances how special these products by such skilled artisans are.
