Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Celinda uses traditional materials to create her contemporary clothing line. Her designs are often based on Andean styles such as ponchos and ruanas, her garments are machine knit and finished by hand. From her early teens Celinda was obsessed with textiles and began to learn tailoring, knitting, crochet, toy-making and appliqué. Many of these crafts were taught to her by her family. Today she enjoys passing her skills on to the next generation. She encourages university students who are curious about the textile arts to visit her workshop and "practice".

Celinda has a natural entrepreneurial spirit. She attempted many things before finding her own workshop. Dedicated to preserving Peruvian textile traditions, she trains her own workers and informally trains university student who have an open invitation to visit her workshop and learn about the textile arts. She is an asset to her community.

Celinda, her husband and her grandson are all supported through her Novica sales. These sales are steady enabling her to pay her employees, her workshop bills and other living expenses.

Celinda hires as many university students as possible. It is her way of ensuring that someone will not have to give up their studies because they cannot afford to continue.

She has received an award for quality and design from Promperu the Peruvian export and tourism agency.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Celinda's is proud to be able to pay for the education of one of her grandsons.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

"Warm, thick, soft & luxurious. A great value!"

Highly recommended. A substantial piece for protecting against the winter cold. The color is even richer than in the picture. This is SO reasonably priced!!

"Warm and Wonderful"

This bright red scarf was a delightful purchase for a gift to a friend. I liked it for its soft texture and holiday appeal. Turns out my friend is allergic, so I kept it for myself!

Barbara

I bought Celinda's misty grey alpaca cloak with white embroidery as a birthday gift to myself. My, what great taste I have! Celinda's designs are exquisite, and the workmanship is excellent. The cape is very soft and warm, yet light weight. I am receiving many compliments and definitely will order more of her artistry. What a pleasure to wear!
