Antonio Caceres
Introduction
Antonio Caceres an artisans in the Andean weaving town of Hualhuas. Address: Jr. 28 de Julio 888 Hualhuas Peru
Meet Antonio

Antonio Caceres is the fourth generation of his family to weave, but the first to master natural dying. He is considered an expert in his field.

Hugo Zumbuhl, a Swiss scientist who came to Peru to study natural dyeing techniques, who worked extensively with Caceres and Francisco Rojas on natural dying. Caceres has traveled extensively throughout Peru teaching the process.

Caceres is famous for his colors. All his products are naturally dyed, using traditional pre-Inca techniques. Plants and insects are responsible for the colors: flowers and bushes such as hojas de nogal (brown), chilca (green), flor blanca (yellow), the bark of the palo inka tree for blue and cochanilla, an insect found on cacti, for red. The natural materials are then ground together and boiled with the materials. Caceres is inspired by experimentation. He likes to mix colors or go out to the fields and pick up herbs and see what can come out of it.

He says that he works for his children, to give them a life where they can do whatever they want. That said, he hopes they chose weaving.
