Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Pia's struggles with her health have forced her to downsize her workshop but she is determined to keep it open. Her workers rely on their earnings to care for themselves and their families. Nearly half of the workshop's income is derived from Novica sales and Pia does not want to let let her helpers down.

Pia has taken a very modern approach to textile production. Her workers live far from her workshop and used to spend hours each day traveling to work. Pia moved her knitting machines to her artisans' homes and they no longer have to travel great distances. They are able to spend more time with their families and still earn a living. Pia works with machine knitters and hand finishers to create her knitwear collection.

Pia struggles daily with fibromyalgia. Marcelino, her assistant, of 32 years, suffered a stroke in 2016. He continues with his knitting at the workshop but struggles with work that once came easily. However, they have worked together since the very beginning and find joy in their success and strength in each other as they face their health challenges.

Pia's innovative approach to production has enabled her to work with artisans who once needed to travel a great distance to the workshop. In spite of her own health difficulties, she has kept her workshop open in order to provide a steady income for her collaborators.

Pia has been included in a local magazine story about her participation in an event to benefit profoundly deaf children.

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

Pia's children are grown but she provides for the education of a grandchild.

"Lovely, graceful, soft"

I'm going to enjoy wearing my new cardigan. It's comfortable but it can be perfect for the office or for a casual day. The wool is oh so soft, and the color is nothing short of elegant. It's perfect.

Kristen

I bought both the brown and gray Open Cape Collar alapaca sweaters and I absolutely LOVE them. I was a little worried that the cut wouldn't look good- I paired it with a belt and it's perfect. I get compliments all the time- unique, looks great, and super warm. Couldn't be happier.

I bought this sweater for myself for Christmas. The color is a perfect match to a pair of jeans that I have. The yarn is very soft. I love wearing it.

Lila

Dear Pia, I love your designs, but I am 5'1"" tall and weigh 105 lbs. Unfortunately, your size s/m is too big for me. I ordered one of your sweaters and had to return it. S/M does not work for a petite woman. Sincerely, A fan and follower
