I was born in San Pedro de Cajas, moved to Huancayo when I was 14 years, and entered the wonderful world of textiles just by watching my parents. I was fascinated! I learned from them gradually, and they taught me all the serets of working with alpaca fleece. As time went by, I began to work with them and, eventually, they put me in charge of the family workshop.

I describe my art like I do my feelings — that is, I weave how I feel when I'm designing, and I use colors and different types of weaves to convey how I feel, the happiness in my heart. My motivation comes from my deep love for this art, to what I do. You can see it through the dedication and effort I put into every piece.

"The greatest challenge I've had to face is actually ongoing — I'm determined to always aim for the best, whether as a person, a worker or a team leader.

"To all of you, all I can say is thank you, and God bless you."

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.
