Raúl Nuñez is 39 years old and belongs to the third generation of a family of artisan weavers. His roots are linked to Hualhuas, a town in the province of Huancayo in Peru. This district is known as the cradle of weavers and artisans. His way of working has preserved the ancestral know-how of the Inca culture, to which he belongs. It was at the age of 12 when Raúl started to work on the pedal loom, a technique that he now develops with mastery. Proof of this is the exquisite ruanas he has made for Benibeca, a reflection of the possibilities offered by the new craftsmanship connected to contemporary luxury.
