Artisan Information

Puriqwarmi

Shop all Puriqwarmi products

Puriqwarmi is the artistic name of Sonia López, born April 17, 1960 in Huanuco. In the Quechua language, Puriqwarmi means "Woman who walks, who moves," and her father used to repeat that to her when she was a little girl.

"My interest in handicrafts comes from our own family traditions," she says. "My father is 91 and he still creates artisan pieces. My mother spins and weaves wool. I am dedicated exclusively to textile arts, something I've done from the time I was quite young.

"I'd describe my work as a need to provide warmth, protection and color. I try to interpret pre-Hispanic design by way of my feelings, and transmit them through contemporary techniques. As a craftswoman, my motivation comes from inside my very being, from my roots and my experiences. These are always present in my designs."

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
