I was seven when I learned to weave and from that moment, it became my passion. It was really the first thing I ever learned, as I didn't learn to read and write until I was 18.

I was born and raised in a small town in Guatemala where I lived with my parents, five brothers and a sister. Mom and Dad were always artisans and they taught us to weave on a handloom from a very early age.

"I remember my first weaving. It was a table runner in the three colors typically used in my village — yellow, red and white. I sold it for two quetzals, which was a lot of money for me in those days, and I felt very satisfied with this first achievement.

"In 1983, my brothers, my sister and I joined forces. Now, each one of us works at home with looms we built ourselves. We each create different designs in different sizes, but we all support one another as we have all our lives.

"It's not easy to be an artisan in my country but it's a beautiful kind of work that gives much satisfaction. I love weaving because it is the passion of my life. It's inspiring to be able to work with my family and know that I play a part in the development of my community.

"In weaving, the greatest challenge is to continue innovating, to maintain our standards of quality and to remain willing and eager to learn. Another challenge is to teach my children and members of the community to weave, just as my parents taught me. In this way, we will preserve the handloom tradition.

"Thanks to Novica, artisans like me have the opportunity to reach faraway markets, and it's possible for people in other countries to appreciate what we do. You also make it possible for us to generate more income for our families and our town. Thank you for choosing our designs — each one is crafted with love by a Guatemalan artisan."

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.
