Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Nestor's mother is from Juliaca in the Peruvian altiplano. She taught Nestor to weave and he, in turn, has taught his wife, his two children and his employees. He finds his inspiration in traditional Peruvian art and constantly searches art and history books to refine his craft.

Nestor is not only an employer, he is an important member of his community. He continues to grow his business providing full-time employment to 23 workers and part-time employment to others when he can. He recognizes his good fortune and shares with those less fortunate whenever the opportunity arises. The income from Nestor's Novica sales not only supports his wife, son and elderly parents — it helps to support others in his community. Many of Nestor's employees were homeless. Nestor not only provides them with work, he provides a place to stay or live.

Nestor loves his community and does what he can to help it. He employs disabled elderly craftswomen to create the unique hand finishes applied to his designs. These women would be unable to care for themselves without the support Nestor gives them.

Nestor was recently diagnosed with a calcaneal bone spur, a condition is often brought about by repetitive motion. He has been forced to modify his daily routine, however he continues to design and craft fine alpaca apparel in his workshop.

Nestor Yana has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2850 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to buy yarn in the colors of this season's fashion trends for production.

Nestor's persistence and determination have paid off. He not only is able to support himself but has grown his workshop and now offers work to others.

Nestor pays for his son to attend the university and employs other artisans who pay for their own children's education.

Nestor still provides for his son who is in the university.

"Lovely package"

The lovely ruana I purchased came in beautiful gift wrapping so I have no idea how it looks. But I really appreciate the gift wrapping and the sweet, little doll on the package. I'll let you know after Christmas how our daughter looks in your item.

"Had to Have It!"

I'd been looking in local stores for a poncho that to wear over jeans with a turtle neck. When I saw this on NOVICA, there was no doubt that I would purchase it. Soft and alluring, you can dress it up or down. I always get compliments when I wear it!

"My first poncho since I was a child and I love it!"

This Grey Inca Maze is the perfect slate grey which looks very classy. I have been wearing it over jeans with a decorative V neck and also layering a sweater underneath since it has gotten so cold here lately! It is definitely warm and it it's weight is far greater than many of the other ponchos I looked at. It drapes nicely and the neck is not too large. I just think it is classy and hip and interesting and I have received compliments on it when I have worn it. It's beautiful and I am so happy with my purchase!

"This is soft and amazing"

I love this poncho, and get a lot of compliments when I wear it. The texture is soft, and it drapes well. It can be worn as casual or a bit dressy, and the color is gorgeous.

Lorraine

I received my sweater today. The braided cocoa. It is lovely, and made with pride. I know I will be wearing it many many times. Thank you so much for quality clothes. I will be watching your page for more clothes. God Bless

I love this Alpaca blend sweater. the color change at the collar and sleeves helps it be dress or casual with many different outfits.

When ordering sweaters, especially handmade sweaters, online, I'm always concerned whether they fill fit right. The Alpaca blend men's sweater 'Blue Mountains' fits perfectly, it is very soft for a wool sweater, and the colors and design are just beautiful. Thank you! A. Kuhn
