A modern weaver in the Andes, Celestino started weaving for Allpa in 2001, from his backyard with a very rustic loom.
Today he lives on the outskirts of Huancayo and employs a team of people. Celestino is proud to say that his textiles travel around the world and reach homes in Europe, North America, Japan and Australia.
