Introduction

Meet Victor
 

Victor Ingaroca Tupacyupanqui was born in the province of Hualhuas-Huancayo in the Central Peruvian Andes. Although he learned the art of weaving from his grandparents and mother, he claims to be a descendent of Inca nobility, inheriting his skill from his ancestors.

When he was a boy, he helped by making thread from alpaca wool on the spinning wheel and by the age of 15, he began to learn the art of weaving. In the beginning of his career, he worked on projects, but eventually found a way to work on his own. His factory was formed in 2002 making products with selected fibers of alpaca, llama, sheep and pyma cotton.

The two principal tools he uses are the two-pedaled loom and the four-pedaled loom, the latter which is used to create reversible rugs. Arguably, he offers the highest quality weavings in Hualhaus as his weavings, based on pre-Columbian techniques used by the Nasca and Paracas cultures, are stunning. He has three children and he tries to do everything possible to teach his family the art of weaving he has mastered so well.
