Product Features
Working with Fair Trade certified organizations is an important part of what we do. This product is made by artisans that are fairly compensated for their skilled work, and helps provide a living wage as well as safe work conditions.

This preppy twist on classic plaid skirt will look fantastic with lady-like heels and even cooler with a pair of grungy combat boots. Cristina Villalobos designs it in a maxi length with a side slit in a pink, light blue, and navy plaid pattern. Pair it with a simple tank top for summer or a warm turtleneck sweater and tights for winter. The cool cotton blend knit makes it a great pick for travel.

Cristina's work draws inspiration from traditional Peruvian techniques and materials, contemporary styles, and retro glamour. She is currently juggling working as a designer with finishing school and raising her son.

Artisan Information

Cristina Villalobos

My name is Cristina Villalobos. I was born in 1993 in the Peruvian capital of Lima. I consider myself to be a very cheerful, honest, and hardworking woman.

Like many, I have lived through difficult times, even more so because I am young and it is very complicated organizing my time in order to work, study, and be a mother at the same time. This is a challenge that keeps me very mindful of everything, above all my little baby. He gives me the strength every day to give him the best, and I want to be the best mother for him. My dreams are to become renowned for my trademark and my work, be the best mom that I can be for my son, and be able to show him the world.

"From a young age, I saw my father work in textiles and fashion. I liked to sew and draw. Little by little, I became familiar with the yarns and how they could be transformed into beautiful pieces of clothing. The variety of colors that exist and the mixture of textures and materials attract me, especially because I never stop learning.

"I learned these techniques and gained knowledge in the university. Without question, having my family close and seeing the workshop gave me a great opportunity to learn the process from the beginning. I had to force myself to learn a lot and dedicate hours of work, studying and being a mom. It is a marathon, but I love knowing that I am working to give him the best.

"What I like the most about my art is that we can always make new things and create color schemes that are outside of the ordinary. Pleasing shoppers and making an item of clothing that people hey can identify with is very challenging. I work constantly to achieve this. I am greatly inspired by retro fashion from previous decades, as well as by the landscapes of our incredible Peru. Being able to live here is a pleasure."

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.
